Egypt - A Black day for football

The spectre of death loomed
Upon a victory for Al Masry
Port Said tragically doomed
Upon defeat of rivals Al Ahly

Pitch stampede at the whistle
Seventy four the total dead
Knives, sticks and a stone missile
Fans stabbed and suffocated

Horror and destruction the score
Stench of ruin bites like frost
Abo Treika said, "This is war"
Now bring justice for those souls lost
