The Azzurri and Grey Skies Thinking

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oh, it’s a long time ago,
When Michelangelo
Painted the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling,
And I can’t help feeling
That it must be 40 years ago
When Charlton Heston played angelo
In the Agony and the Ecstasy.
But just last night,
When things were so tight,
In the very last minute,
The Azzurri thought they’d done it,
Just for a nano-second,
It seeemed that Heaven beckoned,
Instead Antonio Cassano
Played The Ecstasy and the Agony.

Do you feel pity for them or not? It’s a sort of blue litmus paper isn’t it?
