The Life of a Table Football Player

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The table football player stands with pride
Ship shape socks and dependable jet black hair
Cut with the finest military discipline
A uniform made from functionality
Side to side with his band of Bonzini brothers
Moving in perfect synchronicity
Spin – shift – left – right – spin –shift – left – right
Turning in graceful degrees of productivity
Pinging balls swiftly skim past his feet
Deflections and wooden ricochets
His troop step in time to the games heartbeat
In a riveting regimental roll
His foosball dream is hard-wearing
His faded face, his boot mark scuffs
Paint scratched scars and vintage chips
From the rattle of bygone victories
His diligence to duty is unbreakable
Forever durable and ready
Stories spin out from the revolving life
Of the table football player
