In your blood

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The right boot
we would give
to be in your shoes
to have lived.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Your sliding tackle
Anfield’s applaud
your fisted salute
Anfield’s roars.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Worst of times
worst of days
probaby not right
that you stayed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When the boot did come
24 games on
surprised no-one
you had gone.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Years later
the greats converge
reminisce with fondness
the times with us.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Welcome back Torben
to your greatest adventure
when it’s in your blood
it remains forever.

Notes

Torben Piechnik. Generally regarded as not being one of the best to have ever donned the red shirt (or even grass green away strip of the time). No longer playing (he now works as a masseur) but still supporting. Good on you.
