outsider

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 the star player
is mainly favoured
who plays consistently
whose playing is savoured

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 and then there’s a player
who tries his best, but
as he never gets noticed
becomes depressed

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 during one game
the star player slips
the resounding crack echoes
screams emit from his lips

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 suddenly this outsider
comes on as sub player
and shocks the team, the crowd, the coach
answers the team’s prayer

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 what some people realise
and i hope they take heed
a chance, some hope
is all they might need!
