Pressure Of The Past

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When Beckham stepped up
to take the penalty
v. Argentina
how did he feel?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Did he remember
the years of hatred
that followed
the last game?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Or did he think
of the stunner
in the last minute
against Greece?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Either way
he did not waver, though
a couple of inches
to the left

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and the goalkeeper
would have saved it.
By such small margins
do we fall or flourish.
