Goodison Park means at least good park
All the stadiums under the heaven are The heaven’s Parks
And should Everton leave Goodison will it stay as
most loved Park ?
The Good Goodison Park

A more than able Kane – nice one.

Apologies, just spotted your rhyme scheme. Don’t do end rhymes too often.

I noticed the officials too and wondered what all the kerfuffle was about. Seriously?? Such a shame there always has to be some sort of controversy. Love how you managed to get all this into verse and so quickly. Not sure how you feel about enjambment, but I’d be tempted to tweak line 4 to ‘Danish national anthem booed, flipped over’. But that’s just me. I most certainly agree with your fair play sentiments.

Love the wry humour. Good piece.

yeah, took a bit of thought putting the two parts together so it also worked as a whole. Didn’t know about this site till I started searching markets for football poems/current events – not many! Some good stuff on here.

Sounds great. I’m going back in the club and I’m sure it’ll be another epic night. Social distancing soon disappeared though and there was lots of hugging going on. Still after the 18 months we’ve all had it had to happen that’s the beauty of football. Enjoy your night.
