Love and Football II
I have a Fabregas jersey
And don’t know what to do with it.
I fear buying one of van Persie-
Too much for my heart and pocket.
A gift my girlfriend gave to me,
Love and winning are too good to
Last like the unbeaten trophy
Season. Life and football- ditto.
How will I ever live without
Her? A lone tree without its roots-
Such was at Arsenal the doubt
To walk without those magic boots.
Then I met another girl who
Made Goodness seem to have mercy
And bestowed what for long was due,
Just as it came to van Persie.
But all along, there was my mom,
Beside, besides loving me more.
Yet I have never told her from
My heart how much I still love her.
It’s been long since I told her that
But she does not complain about.
I have taken her for granted,
As have Arsene during this drought.
As life goes on around my lover
And as I applaud van Persie,
I’ll write letters to my mother
And seek Arsene Wenger’s jersey.
