Gerd Muller

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 All of life
Coursing through
Each thirsty vein
Binding dreams
And racing off down a road
That opened its journey
Upon the shoulders
Of the broad elephantine figure
The little cannon
Carrying a nations desire
Hopes fired from a heart
That hammered its life force
Firing boots
That powered shots
Blasted nets
And left defences
Shell shocked
In the aftermath
As a bombsite…
