Rush Goalies

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2008 by dc

The ball
Like a dog
Amongst pigeons,
Shirts with ripped
Pockets,
Haircuts
Like car crashes,
Arms in the air,

‘Me, me, ME!’

A fat boy
Is sweating
And spitting out
Bits of a pasty,
Another
Is ambling around,
Kicking others
In the shins.

Everyone’s
Exploding with gusto,
They’re like
Ants across sugar,
Moths ‘round
A flame,
A fight starts,
Ends and
Another begins.

It’s
25 – 26
As the
School bell
Rings.
