image for Drogba Addresses UEFA and Europeans on Chelsea vs Barca Match Ovreball

Friends, Europeans, soccer-lovers, lend me your ears.
The evil that referees do lives after them;
The bad decision is oft interrèd with the matches.
So let it be with Ovrebo. The noble UEFA
Hath told you Ovrebo was right.
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Chelsea FC paid for it.
For UEFA is an honourable body,
Here under leave of UEFA
Come I to speak in Chelsea's Champion's League funeral.
Chelsea is my club, faithful and just to me.
But UEFA says it was ambitious,
And UEFA is an honourable body.
Chelsea had brought many trophies to England,
Did this in Chelsea seem ambitious?
When referees had been fair, Chelsea hath won.
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.
Yet UEFA says Chelsea was ambitious,
And UEFA is an honourable body.
You all did see that at Stamford Bridge
We more than thrice had genuine penalty appeals
Which the referee all refused. Was this ambition?
Yet UEFA says Chelsea was ambitious,
And sure UEFA is an honourable body.
I speak not to disprove what UEFA spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love Chelsea play, not without cause.
What cause withholds you now to mourn for Chelsea?
O judgement, thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their love of football!
A blind referee would have done better than this
But for a holler am I now called to judgment
My heart is there in the "Coffin" with Chelsea
I must pause until it comes back to me
