If this be the nineteen sixties,
A new state that is, Hawaii.

What know we, of soccer to be,
Ice skating, where it is sunny?

Neither sport was known to us all,
But football, baseball, basketball.

This query poised to me this day,
With presence of mind, hear I say,

Of what I know, throughout my life,
Of what interest will it incite,

Where none had existed before,
Granted, it opens a new door,

But, late in my life, friends and
Family are more important,

That sparks a want within my heart,
Equal with those, who takes in part,

This twenty nineteen FIFA Cup,
Be it Women or Men gears up,

Nay, ghostly vagueness touch my heart,
So to this, I will not take part.

I know nothing of the World Cup, but William, this seems like a winning poem to me.
