Football in the snow

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You CAN play football
in the snow
I thought you couldn’t
but now I know,
that anything is do-able
if your stubborn enough,
though I won’t pretend
that it wasn’t tough.
We played 4v4
and shared the same plight,
t’was random whether
the ball went left or right.
Ten minutes in
we’re all soaking and cold,
especially us who were
playing in goal!

Notes

Yesterday (when there wasn’t any snow left) I decided that he next day I was going to go to the field at the back of my mate’s estate and practice goal-kicks. This morning there was snow everywhere (and school was off!) but I had decided so off I went. After I’d taken about five, Aidan and Matt wandered over and we decided to round up the guys for a game. What followed was possibly the least skillful game of football in history!
