Lapse of Lucidity

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A simple backpass
Rolls along the grass
Keeper has no worry
Boots it in no hurry.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A thousand times
A familiar rhyme
He’s done it all before
He finds it quite a bore.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Then just once
He feels a dunce
With a mighty swing
Miss…the ball is in.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Shoulders are shrugged
He’s just been mugged
Stares intently at the spot
Fault of the pitch he knows its not.
