Funeral Poems For A Football Player: "THE PASSING OF A FOOTBALLER".





Football's a match made in heaven

Which is fan-tastic news for me

And heaven's a level playing field

Where anyone can kick off for free


The referee needs no introduction

Or whistle for a foul blow

When God raises his eyebrows

None argue with the penalty or throw


The transfer window never closes

As new  players arrive all the time

There's always a top team to play on

As for the kit, I just wish I'd brought mine


We kick off side by side in a minute

Cheered by old family, teammates and friends

Football's really a blast in heaven

After your first whistle the matches never end
