Be A Sport

Tennis like boxing

Is blow versus blow

Every punch and strike

Seeks to lay you low

Intense confrontation

Emotional to and fro

Skilful yes I grant you

But not one I want to know


Give me football any day

And yes athletics to

Running and jumping and scoring goals

Involving many too

That singular personal intense set to

Goes against my grain

Orchestral manoeuvres on a park

A communal refrain


Wimbledon ladies’ final

I cannot bear to watch

Wanting Jabeur to win it

But she may have met her match

So here I sit a-writing

A football man at heart

Waiting for the season

To return again to start
