A simple skill

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You dig a pit in the jungle clearing,
Cover it with fronds and leaves.
Hide whene’er a football’s nearing
(Free from danger, he believes)
Bouncing hard upon the clover,
Watch him break the leaves and fall.
So dear friends, the lesson’s over,
That is how to trap a ball.
