World Cup Up

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Players’ garments perspiration drank
to the applause of a crowd’s roar;
at the stadium were bodies dank
winning and losing alike entering door.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 As the cock crow’s the marching band’s rock
bestows an hour’s glory of victory in tower;
having practiced many hands passing a clock
being rewarded for determination with a flower shower.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The ball in the goal enters still
as the sweet scent of glory fills the air;
the trophy’s awarded to those champions who will
triumph adversities in fate to dare.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Many tournaments came
in imminent unachieving fear;
encouraged & motivated by a World Cup game
as heroes in the making are now where once men were.
