Emile Heskey

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He’s the real deal,
big Emile,
Heskey the Hitman,
made of steel.
Been here since
the dawn of time*
and deserves
recognition in rhyme
for giving all,
mind body and soul
in fact just for
the Villa debut goal,
the man’s a workhorse,
with energy and power
when they see him coming
the opposition cower.
Big Emile,
six foot two
defences part
when he’s powering through.
He’s like Marmite,
a player you love or you hate,
he’s taken some stick
but he’s really great.
He’s the real deal
Big Emile
Heskey the hitman
made of steel.



* Maybe it’s just because I’m young, but it feels like Emile Heskey has been around forever.
