1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Landon Donovan
Landed at Everton
Landed from the Galaxy
“Land of Angelic Sun”

Scored goals, made assists
Landon’s brand of candy
Blends with Toffees, who were blessed

“Sunshine Superman”
The “mighty fine line”
Of skiffler Lonnie Donegan

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Boss, get back on the phone
Get Landon back on loan
He should never stalk alone
From his People’s Club home

Notes

The sound of a poem is as important as its meaning. “Landon Donovan – Michael Finnegan – Lonnie Donegan'” was going through my head, and this is how it came out.
