A Tribute to Mohun Bagan’s Derby Win on 9th April 2017

Today, the sky shone in green and maroon,

You set the Siliguri stadium ablaze,

Chants rippled in your song,

You stole our delirious gaze.

 

Your exploits lived my childhood fairy-tale,

Writing football dictum upon the stadium,

Pioneering victories as you sail,

Since 1911, you have always won.

History desired to be reared by you,

a few setbacks but you made our dreams come true,

when the world came to see our nation,

The pride of Bengal, India’s number one,

You’re our life, you’re our love, you’re our beloved Mohun Bagan.

 

Sony’s shot made it one, the stadium cheered your slogan,

An ode by Pindar took its birth, with the second goal by Azhar,

You held close your deceased Soumya, you reiterated his name.

My ink becomes your flag, my poetry your celebration.

You thwarted sleazy pelters’ howl,

You withstood your rival’s growl,

At that 43rd  minute, you led by two,

A derby to win, to make our wishes come true.

You painted a child’s dream,  our nation’s number one,

You’re our life, you’re our love, you’re our beloved Mohun Bagan.

 

Today the stars shall twinkle in green and the moon shall shine in maroon,

Today the sun shall hide its yellow and give you its boon.

Today, your victory shall be the only celebration

‘Joy Mohun Bagan,’ shall chant the entire nation,

Once again, a 2-1 victory, you remain our number one,

Because you’re our life, you’re our love, you’re our beloved Mohun Bagan.
