Sweet Right Foot

©Bronski Beat 2009.


I was not able to give you the gift of mathematics

The gift of music

The gift of patience and kindness

Maybe they came from somewhere else in the gene pool

Maybe it was nurture not nature


But I like to think that one of my genes slipped from my generation to yours

A sweet right foot

A shot like no other

Bullet into top right hand corner

Unstoppable volley, half way up the pitch

Rasping screamer, impossible distance

Leaving opponent and team-mate

Quietly respectful


A sweet right foot

Treasure it, enjoy it

It will comfort you on many occasions

Give thanks

That came from me


From How To Lose Your Life, a small book of words and pictures made with Rob Pepper.
