The Predatory Striker

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A ball motionless on the pitch
Hunting boots sniffing out goals
Laced with the scent of glory
Beckons towards the
Creator of Dreams
Shaping history from angles
To nestle in the immortal world
Of past and shadows

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A man races lightning across the pitch
Sparks explode from his boots
From his heels Catherine Wheels
Like fireflies dance
Creator of Dreams
History prowls at your name
Whilst lesser gods unscrew their studs
Bewitched by your pace and passion.

So L’pool need a new striker? yeah right!

Well in Djibbers!
