The Roeder Shuffle

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hucker rolls it out to Glenn,
tall, upright and balanced,

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 who advances into space,
his eyes fixed on the movement

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 around and ahead of him,
waiting for a team-mate’s

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 diagonal run; then, challenged,
his leg steps over,

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 bamboozles, confounds
and elicits gasps,

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 as, like a matador,
he leaves his opponent for dead.
