Beyond the Football Pitch – for Refugee Week

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Beyond the Football Pitch.
Beyond the Surrealist Soccer skills,
Refugees play on the bare Earth.
The Dispossessed play on The Border.
Gypsies play across Frontiers.
Soldiers play Enemies across war zones,
Pacifists play on Sailsbury Plain,
Prisoners play behind High Walls.
The POOR play anywhere-anytime,
Stroud Strollers play The Commoners.
