A New Old Warrior


His joyous face now hangs upon so many of our walls,
While countless shirts are printed with his 26 on all,
And now, cast gold, available, the boot that kicked the ball,
A Yorkshire legend now, this German who answered the call.

A new Schindler emerged at Burnley, a Schindler warrior king,
Who put his body on the line as Town went for the win,
A very real example of the Terrier within,
To put himself through all of that, the very best of him.

Football is moments, and Schindler has those,
This time a flicked header just inside the post,
It wasn’t a winner, but it felt pretty close,
Standing up for his team when they needed it most.
