what now…..with becks and zola gone?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 what now
with ‘becks’ to spain
and zola too –
from chelsea’s hallowed turf
long gone

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 who now
to steer banana blasts
past walls of steel
as if they were not there

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 who now to jink and weave past lunging feet
like butterflies on buddleah
or kingfishers dancing
with river-flies on lotus flowers

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 who now to shine on through
like sun at glastonbury
after nights of rain and mud
down by the jazz stage

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 remember well my child
the lion and lamb
do not have transfer fees
or wages from heaven
nor agents to secure them rights
to graze in different fields

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 fear not my friends
the feet and hearts still dance
and one will come
to light our saturdays

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 for well I know
that you and I
still will sing
like mountain lions
doing their washing by floodlight..
without washing powder..
as if nothing at all
has changed

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 and without fear
we face another season
another chance
for even though
outside
all is dark
inside
both stadia and heart
we are one

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 one in life and
one in football

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 one world
one team
one love
one dream
above all
one opportunity

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 and
like the changing seasons
be they nature or football
there is only
now
in the champions league of life

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 and think on this…

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 today is always only …
the day before tomorrow

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 …apparently!

and why not…with Mr Russia on board!
