Suspense

#fowc #suspense

Goalkeeper anticipating free kick

There’s an atmosphere growing

around the opposition’s end at a Northern Football Team

their captain scythed down the home team’s star striker

and there were handbags approaching half time

From uproar and arguments, its down to two men

the man in red against the man in green

man in green stands on the line

man in red puts the ball on the spot

Time seems to have stopped

for a moment, silence has fallen

you could almost hear a noisy blade

of windswept grass

The striker starts to run at the ball

the goalie stands his ground

left or right – that decision

that will change the supporters sound

Argument

footballArgument

The fuse was lit at Half Time

but its a slow burner this one

was it a foul?

infringement ?

or just down right dangerous ?

 

Learned friends,

now debate

On Blue on Red

bringing up ancient history

in the process

 

They argue their sides

Was he beaten by skill

or was it the pill

of the overpulled shirt

too much to swallow ?

 

The Linesman Flags…

and there’s loads of handbags

as Ref points to the spot

Blue covers his eyes to

decision of the wise

and Red Cheers on the shot.

 

A Goal is scored, Argument put to bed

Case Closed, in the water dead

Red smiles on with apparent glee

Blue reflects on history
