Prophetic Ode to Fred

June 10, 2014



Without flash or panache

Without fuss or crazy hair-cuts

Without an inho or an ão

The straight-man to Neymar’s buffoonery

The target muscle man in the box

The Anglicized name that rocks

Nets and the ladies’ hearts

Will probably play the part

Of World Cup God

When he scores more goals than all

A Golden Boot and a Golden Ball

Frederico Chaves Guedes he is called.

A preposterous prophecy, right?




The man who scores goals

Against World Champions

Whilst lying down.
