Sharon Marshall – A Tribute

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I don’t mind admitting
I’m really quite partial
To all the fine poems
Of Ms. Sharon Marshall.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The scope of ideas and
The sentence construction,
Ensure that each poem’s
A special production.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The heartache of every
Football supporter
Expounded by Liverpool’s
Favourite daughter.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Although she writes mainly
Of Anfield and Shankly,
Her words touch the hearts
Of all football fans, frankly.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Poetry blossoms when
The poet’s in anguish.
Just look where her once-
Mighty Liverpool languish.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Her poems though mightn’t
Be so reverential,
If she followed a team that
Had certain potential!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 How hard must it be
To be fresh and inspired
When your football team’s tactics
Are jaded and tired?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Yet still she produces
A sparkling confection,
Despite Monsieur Houllier’s
Crass team selection.
