Summer of Sixty Six – Part Fifteen


E0800ABE-56FF-443B-93AC-970402993BBA.jpegSo now we are playing extra time

Anything can happen

We’re all on edge.

Charlton comes close

And hits the post.

And then the goal 

We still remember

The one the Germans

Can’t forget.

Hurst’s shot comes down

Off the bar

It strikes the ground 

But the question is

Where ?!!

Did the ball

Ever cross the line?

Every Englishman’s sure

Every German says no

Will we ever really know?

The referee he wasn’t sure

But the Russian linesman

He said yes!

And to German grief

The goal was awarded.

The debate goes on

It has never ended

They’re still debating 

That goal today.

You couldn’t move

For seeing pictures

Seen from all angles

To try and show

It didn’t go over and wasn’t

A goal.

But who can dispute

What the history books say?

3-2 to the English

With time to play.

So mounting hysteria

English joy

But let’s move on

To the final act.
