Soccer-No greater Sport

I grabbed my shin guard and boot And head out with my team unto the pitch The crowd goes wild, old and young, all hooting The horns of the cars and the vuvuzela’s all tooting Super Sports, Sky Sports, BBC and ESPN- all reporting The game kicks off, Tony in post Anchored by Fish, Tuga, Razak and Bruce Pirlo on the left, Tsidi in the middle, Speelo on the right Saviola, Siyabonga and Blagodzi will be at the fore-front of the fight Souls wrestle for supremacy, the crowd still alive and sparkling all night Go Mighty Panda! Go Mighty Panda!! The away crowd in purple, black and Green cheers wildly Referee whistles for a foul and issues Tuga his second yellow Two yellow cards means an automatic sending off of Tuga, my fellow Down by a man yet not giving up, Coach makes a substitution as Noni comes on for Speelo We’re taking things cool and calm The opposition getting frustrated after 80 minutes My teammates attacking and defending with an irresistible power As the pendulum of action swings from one tower to the other tower I took the game into my own hands and blast a ‘gargo’ shot in the eleventh hour The home crowd goes silent The 40,000 hooting crowd goes quiet That thunderbolt from Siyabonga won us the cup When the game is over the wining team gets a thump up The losing team goes home to prepare for next season and to get fired up The Poet Preacher © 2013
