Greatness

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 What is greatness;
the striker who got the goal
or the defender at the back
who really won the game?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Head over heels
like the crowd in love,
a backflip to celebrate
that lucky, scrappy goal,
more aesthetic the reaction than the action.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 1-0 victory,
cue mass jubilation,
the goal the one and all,
the only.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Clean-sheets best forgotten,
cast aside,
don’t matter,
those at the back
don’t need the glory,
we don’t need to be told we’re good.
