An ode to the champions: Liverpool 2019

Kiev was a disaster, pain and despair
Dream of the 6th was diminished, beyond repair
“Will never win a final” said everyone
“Not the end, only beginning” proclaimed the Normal one
Starting of 2019 wasn’t like the previous one
Even though Napoli, PSG and Bayern were undone
Then the Reds faced Porto, a sense of Deja Vu
6-1 in two legs and Liverpool went through
Barcelona in semifinal, maestro Messi’s might
3-0 at Camp Nou gave agony, nightmare and plight
Salah, Firmino were out; final seemed a distant dream
But it was Jurgen’s Redmen, not your ordinary team
“Let’s fail in the most beautiful way” said the German gaffer
Destiny smiled back, as football God wrote a love letter
Kop sang the anthem as time stood still
Gini and Origi scored a brace, LFC won Four Nil
Then it was time for Madrid, the final game
Liverpool won 2-0 as Origi rose to fame
Almost a million welcomed the team, overjoyed and full of glory
Merseyside saw Red invasion, from Penny Lane to ‘Beatles Story’
It was 14 years since Turkey, 35 since Rome
With a Liverbird upon their chest, they brought the cup back home.
