Sir Matt Busby

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Man of blood
Not impenetrable stone
Who gathered genius
Like fish in a net
Father figure whose beloved sons
Perished in the Munich snow
But whose spirit remained resolute
To find its peace in 1968
upon a Wembley turf
Graced by the fires of Best, Charlton, Eusebio…
And there resurrected
with the stolen hopes of youth
The scattered tears of benediction…
