2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I am the poet
Upon the football pitch I create beauty
And despair
My boots are flashing blades
Merciless as they cut through defences
And render desolate the hopes of goal keepers
My goals are dreams
And my shirt is a shroud
Its number replicated
With my name upon lesser backs
Unwilling to carry my cross
The missed penalty?
And I am Judas Escariot.
