The Saint Of Barcelona

The Vatican
Should fast-track
The canonization
Of Lionel Andrés

The Webster
Should spell
The word wizardry:
M-E-S-S-I

This
Saint of Barcelona
Flaunting
Boots of Lightning
Rules Planet Football

His deftly feet
Defy the physics
Of curvature
And gravity

The Messiah
Has finally arrived
And his name is
Lionel Andrés Messi
