Anti-football poetry stylee – a Messi response

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lionel Messi attacked
But we snuffed him
Lionel Messi attacked – verbally – our tactics
Time we rebuffed him

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He accused us of waging ‘anti-football’
Well that’s his humble opinion
In deference to my heroes I’m hoofing a rebuttal
Into this poetic dominion

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 If it rhymes
Tackle it
Where there’s rhythm
Disrupt it
Where there’s scansion
Scythe it
Where there’s cadence
Chop it
Where there’s alliteration
Disallow it
Where there’s a pun
Call it offside
And as for Syntax and Sylla(bles) …
Enemies to the Rangers pro’s
