A Football Poem: The Tribute Match for the Grenfell Fire Victims

The stars of the football world

will come together soon,

And play a tribute football match;

kick off is at noon.


All the world’s football superstars

will gather all together,

And play a magical game of

football – this is their endeavour.


This global event will be on TV

and will make sporting history,

A game of football at it’s best,

to show the world in harmony.


But, this is a very special game

of football, bursting with desire,

In memory of all those people

who perished, in the Grenfell

Tower fire.


The world has come together,

in a task to praise mankind,

Even the local authorities are

all being so kind.


To stage a football match to

raise money and awareness,

For the people who’ve lost

everything, in a fiery furnace.


The Grenfell Tower football

match is a worthy TV game,

Because the lives of these

people – will never be the



The world football stars get

together and play football

with such desire,

A fantastic footballing tribute –

to the people of the Grenfell

Tower Fire.
