The Moon Pulled Laced Up His Football Boots

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The moon laced up his football boots
The sun went in the goal
And Pluto, Mars and Jupiter
Were Henry, Rooney, Scholes

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The pitch was night the stand was day
The oceans made the crowd
The substitutes a ragged bunch
Of rainbows, hail and clouds!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The moon he played with speed and verve
With skills sublime and sweet
Pass and move his rhythm wise
And play the ball to feet

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 With every touch a masterpiece
Of grace of strength of verve
And when they asked: “How do you feel?”
The moon grinned: “Over the earth!”
