William McGonagall – Who did he play for?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as Pele,
Even though I was only three
When Brazil first lifted the Jules Rimet.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I know that I shall never write a stanza
That’s as exciting as Maradonna.
Though, round the world, infuriated fans are
Still lamenting his lack of honour.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Even if I could be passionate as Byron
I couldn’t do a couplet to rival Zidane.
But wait, yon cusped orb does still fly on
And the curse of night demands a wee dram
