You’re desperate to know the answer
in your high chair opposite the TV.
Bukayo Saka is celebrating an early goal
and I’m thinking, because of the speed
he can travel around the world in one night,
how Santa would be a marauding fullback
or perhaps a holding midfielder
because of his infinite wisdom.
I tell you, actually, he’s quite an old guy
so realistically he’d be a third choice goalkeeper
but you are singing a song to your broccoli.
