Football shakes up the day
As I awaken Maradona dances to disappear
Ah lead me once more to a green pitch
Down careworn streets paved with kids kicking footballs
Lead me by the laces of Zico, to prisms of joy
And football.


Based on the concepts of Jazz Poetry a la Langston Hughes and Bob Kaufman.
