The final send-off. Diego Maradona goes on his way; No arm, no foul.

Head In Our Hands.

At sixty years God has substituted Maradona,
No more muddy fields, he's off to a higher honour,
No dribbling then blowing past defenders any more-
He always had a nose for goal- and a damn good score.

For the true unblinkered unbiased football fan
There was no finer player than the wee Argentinian,
It's only the red white and blue 'uns of Old Eng-er-land
Who'll still send you off on your way with a heavy hand.

(one for the football fans. Some still recall the infamous 'Hand of God'. Don't we?)
Speak to the hand…
