I’ll give you ten million for Thomas.
He bagged twenty-seven* last year.
That was one more than Aguero.
He’s six-fifty plus his career.
Shearer had only two-sixty.
Henry? One seventy-five.
Will anyone ever touch Crispin?
I doubt it, while we are alive.
I know: there’s those pesky Brazilians**.
They say they scored in the four figures.
But CT’d have scored near a million
for Sao Paulo or Santos his big years,
So, I’ll give you ten million for Thomas.
It’s a bargain. Ask all fans what know ‘im,
At this carnival’s start, to be honest,
I think I’d prefer a good poem.
