Black & White Diamond

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ve turned into a football
Black and white and round
I turn a million, different angles
In a thousand different grounds!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’m hoofed & kicked & sliced & missed
I’m volleyed, thumped, and lobbed
I’m trapped & mapped & crossed & passed
And when I score I’m mobbed!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’ve turned into a football
Black and white and round
And though you hear the thud from boots
From me there’s not a sound!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’m thrown, cajoled, pursued and kissed
I’m hurled & stroked & chipped
I’m dribbled and when dispossessed
I bend and then I dip!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I’ve turned into a football
Black and white and round
From stadiums to backyard walls
And children’s hearts I’m found!
