Mister Meredith

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Maybe we can
be sure that
there are football
fans from the
Nobel Prize winners
to the Nobel Prize
contenders
And what we call
people from all walks of life
Just think about
SEAN CONNERY
the Rangers fan
or DANIEL CRAIG the
Liverpool fan
Or The Beatles
EVERTON and LIVERPOOL fans
But for me only one fan
is the World’s best ever fan
Mister W.Meredith who attended
the 1914 F.A CUP FINAL
between Liverpool and Burnley
at Crystal Palace
His story
is better than any film
He was born blind
but he could still attend
the match and understand
by the sound the player                                                                                                          
had the ball
The story worthy of any
GREATEST TALES or teaching or just
miracles
Touching and warm
his story
Nice and great
HUMAN and spiritual
Human and poetic
Mythological

close their eyes and
recognize by the ball sound
how the match develops
If this would be by watching
the match on TV
The speaker would lose
his job for us
But without any
thinking about”what would be”
I conclude that the 1914 story about
Mister Meredith is
priceless, invaluable, genial
and is a story about the World’s
best ever football fan
