Homeless World Cup 2016

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Whilst the world’s press
fawn and fuss
over Ronaldos moth
And Bales manbun
There is a football competition
Going on in Glasgow
Shirts of every colour blend
Picasso cant keep up

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Football history is being made
Beyond the neon glare of Brexit and Bremain
And the snapchat selfies that all played out democracy
Beyond the park of princes
That costs a Kings ransom to attend

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Street Football
SIXTY FOUR teams
FIFTY TWO countries
And every player woman and man
With a story to tell
So listen up

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The redemption of football
That greedy grasping gulping insatiable sport
Gives hope and home
And VOICE
To those invisible spaces
And George Square the host that proffers chance
For the cynic to dare a change of heart
Says welcome here those who love football
join in take part make yourself at home.

please support this fantastic competition Homeless World Cup
