Life of a Football

Everyone’s favorite
The football.

Get together,
Play a game;
The football’s game too:
Isn’t this what fun is about?

Kick it around,
Maul it even.
The football’s still game:
As long as everyone’s happy!

And then the game’s over,
The football’s thrown aside.
Licking its wounds, fighting its miseries:
Alone.

  1. There’s something about sadness thats poetic.

    Of course, this one isn’t sad.. i almost laughed actually, thinkin about the football feeling unwanted. Interesting to see the game from its p.o.v.
