A Man Named Abramovich

The Poetic Game by Michael E. Quigg - combining soccer and poetry

There once was a man named Abramovich

Who in business was quite the son-of-a-bitch

But in the world of football

Ego will be the downfall

Of this maniacal man named Abramovich


With this maniacal man named Abramovich

Robby's prob'ly lucky he's not in a ditch

If the game was aluminum

He'd be feeding bacterium

And tiredly twitching his last lonely twitch
