Piermario Morosini

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Why are they playing no matches today?
Why are the football grounds empty?
All action’s called off as a mark of respect
For a player died aged five and twenty.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But why, why, why, why could he not survive
When he was struck down by heart failure?
This is the question echoing, echoing
Round all those desolate stadia.
