Zorba the Greek

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We all did hail Zorba the Greek
Unaware what havoc you would wreak
Your running pace a slow andante
A Divine Comedy by Dante
Is happiness a frugal heart?
Away clean sheet, be nice to start
Our one nil lead you did expunge
With your silly pointless lunge
Our defence turns to semolina
With boo boo after Bouboulina
It came to you as some surprise
Torpedo falling from the skies
Pepe dives, the lad fell over
You standing there like Super Grover
I fear you’ll never find your feet
Be gone to lignite mine in Crete

Notes

Zorba The Greek is a novel written by Nikos Kazantzakis in 1946.
It tells the tale of a young Greek intellectual who puts aside his copy of A Divine Comedy by Dante and sets off to re-open a lignite mine in Crete with the help of the boisterous and mysterious Alexis Zorba.
Bouboulina is a pet name given by Zorba to Madame Hortense the hotel owner.

Sotirios Kyrgiakos on the other hand had a nightmare last Saturday.
