1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ( That Goal in Sudan )

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 and then
the miracle
redoing the failure
regaining the victory
the delicious thrill
that demanded no patting hand
those slicing skillful runs
cutting through opponents
to leave them wondering
like stars lost at the sky
as you and your terrific
brilliance slid triumphantly
into history and hall of fame
leaving faces furious
to gaze only at the ground
