Ain’t he affable – the mercurial Diego Maradona,
whose tantrums could have shamed a prima donna.
He was gifted with the hand of God,
and none found it too queer or too odd.
The number ten jersey as he donned,
sent the fans into a tizzy yond!
Out he came in stripes of white and blue,
and time either stood still – or simply flew!
He dribbled, he kicked,
while cameras around him clicked,
furiously, oft in awe, of the sheer magic,
displayed by the player charismatic!
