1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The grace of genius
In the blood
Subtle as a glance
The intuitive knowledge
Announced with
The undisputed joy
The twinkle in the eyes
The generous heart
Pouring its power
Into the eager legs
The willing limbs
The 11th commandment
Made flesh
Never growing old
Beneath the mortal sun
The Beautiful Game
Fused with impeccable truth
Running with axis balanced
In perfect motion.



Pele, the greatest footballer of all time.
Swapping shirts once more with his friend Bobby Moore.
Heaven’s 11, my oh my what a team.
