Thank You Brazil

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Today showed the fragility-
dependence on ability,
your offensive futility,
and Germany’s nobility.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But, if you were to play again,
or two more times, or even ten,
who could say that these same men
would be the victors? No one can.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s only moments in the mirror.
Looking back they become clearer.
The next World Cup, already nearer.
Losing makes the next one dearer.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So, thank you. You were gracious hosts,
and, if loss betrays the boasts,
from northern shores to southern coasts,
the globe includes you in its toasts.
