Football As An Art Form

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The curling swirling free colours
Of a Wayne Rooney goal
Perfect symmetry coming together
Like the shades of a rainbow
The arc of a free kick
Stretching over the agonised fingers
Of the goalkeeper…
Those Football Boots
His paint brushes
Every bit as creative
As Monet and Van Gogh
The pitch his canvas
Beautiful football his oils.
