Excruciating

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tendons and ligaments
A footballers Achilles heel –
Vulnerable points too, the joints
Shin pads for riot shields

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Knees like walnuts
Smashed similarly by crackers
And a ball in the six-inch area
Leads to serious cackles

Notes

This poem is for when the ball hits where it really hurts – the, er, groin area.

The only comfort to the stricken player is an ice-cold sponge while onlookers laugh mercilessly.
