Stampede

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The stampede –
An impressive sight when viewed across the African plains
But in a vista of steel and concrete
Death cruelly clanks its chains

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And all the more despicable
That thuggery be the instigator
With weapons of knives and batons
Snapping like an alligator

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So was it just a case of bad losers –
Or perhaps hoodlums politically motivated?
But the Port Said events
Leave the football world utterly devastated

Our thoughts and prayers to all who lost a loved one in the catastrophe at Port Said, where rioting fans caused mayhem and death last night, at the Al Masry v Al Ahly, Egyptian league match.
