The Russian Constellation

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The curtain rose up in Russia
In a number of different ways,
And the actors from many countries
Lined up on the world-wide stage.
One month to perform
Watched from near and afar,
A constellation of footballers
All set to star.
One by one they start falling,
Shooting stars to the ground,
And at the end of the month
There’ll be just two left around.
Only one will be shining
When the curtain comes down,
And that’s the country that wins
And leaves wearing the crown.

(Looking up to a starlit sky, I have no idea who that will be! )
