Return of the King

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The grass, pristine, looks painted.
The stands are eager
For the fans arrival.
Players, fresh from pre-season games
Have finally lost the pounds
They put on since May.
The anticipation in the stadium
Is almost touchable.
Will freshly toned muscles
Withstand nine months punishment?
New leagues, new sponsors,
Multiple player movements around the country,
As age takes its toll
On long standing professionals.
Television cameras at the ready,
More stadia “cabled up and hardwired”
Commentators and pundits
Ready at the mike
“The boys” at Sky Sports
Will there still be dancing
In the streets of Total Network Solutions?
It may not be the sport of Kings,
But worldwide,
It is the King of sports.
It is its own international language
Understood by millions
