Football Literacy

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The poetry in motion
Upon a football pitch
Whence a Dalglish turn punctuates
The essential wisdom
And simplicity of a game
Thus spake Shankly, Busby, Stein
A Nation’s pride immortalised
Crave rhyme and reason
Dust off old boots in search of youth
When streets were packed with dreams
The ironic prose
Of managers lost for words
Whilst verbs and adverbs
Rain down from a terrace
Teeming with wit
And football poets dream
Of words for goals
Of titles earned
Heroes Villains speak ‘Football’
Still beautiful, beautiful game.
