Immanuel and Oliver

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Can Immanuel soar through the air like a plane?
Can he tip the ball over the bar?
Can he thwart Irish forwards again and again?
Can he shine like a true soccer star?
Can he kick out a football the length of the pitch?
Can he come out and block a la Schmeichel?
Can he jump up and down for a penalty, which
Is construed as extracting the Michael?
Can he fluently swear when he’s having a rant?
Can he run like the old Eisenbahn?
I think that it’s clear that Immanuel Kant,
But I’m certain that Oliver Kahn.
