The State of the Game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Arsenal
Last night made football poetry
A thing of beauty
Sonnets scored sublime goals
From the boots of Lorca, Kupala
And Shakespeare
Whilst for Man Utd
Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez
Created more passion
Than the Bronte sisters
Reader, they harried them…
And the ghost of Robert Burns
Limbered up down the Glasgow roads
Chalk on his boots and fire in his soul.
