That Carlos Alberto Goal
Leave a comment on verse 1 0
Was there ever a finer few moments of football ?
Sumptuous, carefree, yet precise and powerful,
like the smokers fatal first drag, I was hooked,
in an instant, hooked on a game, nine years old.
For forty one years I have looked to replicate
that first glorious high, and I’ve come close
but never quite got there, aren’t all addicts alike ?
Gave up the fags long ago, but I know I’ll never
give up on the game.
