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.
