The Heroes We Knew to Lionel Messi's Insane Touch 

Whether in battles or daily lives, our heroes inspire us 

And though at times it seem they have passed, their spirit lives on 


The Heroes We Knew (poem) 

The lonely and lost my children don’t weep
The dreams which once were have not passed away
The heroes we knew have just gone to sleep
-
Once we were all taught this promise to keep
To aid these our kin and never betray
The lonely and lost my children don’t weep
-
As blessings were spread such joy did we reap
And when we have met the task of the day
The heroes we knew have just gone to sleep
-
With time and its flow misfortune does creep
There’s others who’ll help the people now say
The lonely and lost my children don’t weep
-
With dreams in their minds the masses now steep
Waiting for something to ignite the way
The heroes we knew have just gone to sleep
-
Till action arrives intentions they’ll heap
And cause upon cause will cause them to stray
The lonely and lost my children don’t weep
The heroes we knew have just gone to sleep


To go with this villanelle I've chosen Johnny Horton's "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" sung by Steve Vaus

Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backward and it is for this reason they are on the Australian coat of arms. Lionel Messi, the Argentinian soccer sensation can walk backward, but that's not why he was a guest on a Japanese TV show recently. Lionel AndrĂ©s "Leo" Messi Cuccittini was born on June 24, 1987 in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina. He plays as a forward for Spanish club FC Barcelona and is the captain for the Argentina National team. Lionel is ranked as the best soccer player in the world by some and some even hold him as the best player of all time. A Japanese TV show challenged Lionel to prove his skill by asking him to kick a soccer ball 18 meters in the air (approximately 59 feet). Basically, that is a six-story building. "That is absolutely insane and nearly impossible"' one of the announcers was heard to say (by a press translator). 
Insane, yet our hero goes waaayy beyond: "Lionel Messi Insane Touch on Japanese TV Program ● 'Lifting High 18m'"
