FOOTBALL

A warm July evening.
Outside, boys are playing football.
England have made it to the
Semi-finals.
Puzzling utter joy!
Infectious.
The whole country mesmerised.
There is little sympathy for
The opponents.
We are the greatest!
Seems to be the cry
On this warm evening in July.
Footballers are great athletes
They come from different places.
No town loyalty.
I can’t understand.
But tune up the band.
People are happy.
That must be good.
Barbecues – singing and
the kids dreaming
Of fame when they score
that winning goal
For England.
