The whistle’s bewitched

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In the park before the game starts
all the men run around elegantly
with deliberate exaggerated style
kicking, passing, posing, stretching,
the way professionals do.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Then the referee blows his whistle
and changes them all into
headless chickens.
