Pitch Invasion 004: “Football’s Autograph”

Nakamura’s had his shirt signed:

it’s been tagged with matchday mud.

Though he may be an elite player,

this is grassroots graffiti,

same signature you’d see in Sunday League.

The pitch provides the ink,

and the script, written in a slide-tackle’s hand,

is always the same:

“Football Was Here.”
