Journeyman

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A journeyman leaves his field too early,
replaced by fresh legs before the end of the game.
His acknowledgement a quick slap of palms,
lacking the glory bestowed in his name.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He hears the crowd ignight the ground,
his feet sink into the turf.
each muscle aches as his spirit burns,
his careers end a second birth.
