Addio Carlo

We all thought he was potty
When he came to Everton.
Now Carlo Ancelotti
Has gone and done a bunk.

He’s upped and left for Real Madrid,
World-famous Club, so very big.
Much greater than our Everton,
Who trophies never win.

We understand him perfectly,
We will not rage or rant.
Yet find this sudden exit
Not very elegant.

At first he was magnifico,
Then gold turned all to dross.
He’s booked his flight for Sunny Spain?
It’s really no great loss.

Ciao Ancelotti

No more the raised eyebrow
The gestures along the touchline
The Corleone growls of despair
And now the sands of Crosby silent
Beneath the gaze of the Gormley statues
More permanent than contracts,
The toffee lady’s kippered heart
Unpicks this summer fling.
