Man Utd – Decline And Fall?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Rumours of the Emperor’s decline
are commonplace. The great walls
breached by the ordinary horde
and favoured generals lost and out of sorts.
The Mersey Huns are gathering.
The Emperor is old, thinks more about
his children and his race-horses,
less of the glories he has known.
All Empires end defeated:
Babylon, Russia, Man Utd, Rome.
