Manfred

Our German
Midfield general
His legs could march to Stalingrad
No one was more fanatical
About football
Bavarian Aryan Manfred
Bundesliga youth
Manfred invaded space
Engineered perfect goals
Was our Beethoven
And bomber
Indestructible
As a thing-in-itself

Three brain tumors
Killed Manfred
Leaving devastation
In the field of play
