Thank you to Priceless Joy for hosting FFftAW.
In Junior high, soccer we used to play.
Up, down; between goal posts on soccer field,
Learning through error, our feet ball to wield.
With studies done, we played the entire day.
Our teacher was a pro; swore whole life he played —
Soccer until he was bored at twenty-two.
Taught us, throwing the ball into play through —
Kicking it in when it was offside of play.
Years ago, I gave mean slide tackle away.
I was great at defence; not running entire —
Field; many falls on grass caused allergies ire.
Miss many days spent, stealing the ball rolling,
Passing it off to a team mate scoring goals.
Game I won’t watch; to play again, desiring.
