Pitch Invasion 023: “Neymar, the friendly nuke”
The prince who became a King, the touchline-surfer with the future perfect;
When he surges, back fours turn nervous
As they and the ball become his servant.
Neymar didn’t warn them;
Creatures this pretty aren’t meant to be killers,
But he’s a bullet disguised as a boy band,
a nuke beneath a cute tattoo;
And, what’s more, the Ballon D’Or
Will be his captive soon.
