1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Birthplace of the Beautiful Game
Where logic shook its head
Before the twisted legs of Garrincha
Reason staggered by the sublime Jair
And Beauty paled when tackled by
The purity of Pele
Maracanã how your terrace shines
Truly the place where football takes its ball home.
