Football - The most beautiful game

After stepping into the field
there is no way out
even before you start the game
you hear the fans shout

The players then sings their anthem
its football......
the most beautiful game.....

And when the whistle blows
the crowd starts their roar
in the 90 tensed minutes
the players got to score

Football is friendly only in name
because friendliness is not meant for football....
the most beautiful game....

So when the hard tackles go in
and injured fellow goes out
the crowd becomes furious
and starts to shout

Even after breaking one's leg
there seems to be no shame
because its football....
the most beautiful game....

Football! ! !

Football is my favorite game
I love to watch them play -
Those tightly muscled butts and legs
On an awesome autumn day;
How fluidly and gracefully
They dance across the green -
Such elegant contenders play
The best I've ever seen;
Some people think I'm crazy
The way I love the game -
But I'd rather be watching football
Than anything I can name;
Of course I may be prejudiced
I love my maise and blue -
That BIG 10 team that rules the league.............
You rock the Big House - BLUE! ! !

You May Know A Lot About Your Favourite Game

You may know a lot about your favourite game
And from your commentaries and writings on it you know of wealth and fame
But there's more to life than talking of and writing of football
And about other things you seem to know little at all
By the followers of football your type are well known
And they look up to you as one in a class of your own
They well may be happy your praises to sing
For football to them is an important thing
But by other than me it has been said before
That football is just a game that and little more
For many from life's cares a brief getaway
To cheer on their team in the game of the day
And you football writer and commentator and sporting celebrity
You may seem enlightened to many but not so to me.

Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple.

Because, they're only thinking about one team when that game's over. Before the game, they're talking about two football teams. When the game's over, there's only one winner.

I think in the bullpen you can tell during your warmups, if you have a good feel for it. But anything can happen once you get into a game. Sometimes you just wind up throwing it better than ever before one day without knowing why.

Naked

I wake up in the morning
Put on my face
The one that's gonna get me
Through another day
Doesn't really matter
How I feel inside
'Cause life is like a game sometimes

But then you came around me
The walls just disappeared
Nothing to surround me
And keep me from my fears
I'm unprotected
See how I've opened up
Oh

Happiness Is A Place

There's a separated place between me and all my aches
Sometimes to be there its out of my hands
It's just destiny's unfair game
Sometimes just a smile guides me up there
Oh there my soul revives and sighs again and again
How an amazing pleasure just being there
Like a bird all my senses take wings to fly
Murmuring delightful songs of love
My heart cradles at blue skies
Happiness is a place.
Full of trace
Away of the aches

Wishful Thinking

Into the night
Still falls the rain
Even the dogs stay home tonight
Out on the streets
Going nowhere
Just one direction in my thoughts
Love can be magic
It can be a game
Sometimes it's tragic
And sometimes a shame
Words were my bullits
Emotion my gun
I was a runner
Now i'm on the run
Sometimes i wish that you were dead
That is because you haunt me so
I wasn't right to let you go away
I try to kill the pain inside
But you are always on my mind
No matter where i go or stay
Sometimes i dream my time away
And we're together again
But i know that can never be
And all my hopes are in vain
You were my treasure
That i didn't know
You were the sun in my life
Thought i was dying
When i realized
There's just one chance to survive...

Post Grand Final Day

For the winners many weeks of hip hip hooray
And the feeling of joy with their fans months does stay
But for one to win one must lose as some do say
And for the losers only sadness post Grand Final Day.

And since winning is what only does seem to count
Gallant in defeat to little does seem to amount
The joy in victory is always sweet
There is never any glory in defeat.

Those uninterested in sports say football is just a game
That who wins or who loses life goes on the same
But those who support football clubs never see it that way
They do get quite excited watching their team play.

To play in a Grand Final is many a boy's dream
And be a champion player in a Premiership Team
But on post Grand Final day only the winners celebrate
And for their victory their fans say 'twas well worth the wait.

Paper Planes

We get high like vapors and fly like planes
Don’t you try to change our mind, we got money on the brain
If you wanna get the cheddar, you better Kraft your name
On Wall Street and Main, game recognize game

Sometimes we be switching four lanes
Bankrupting banks and ditching Rove Range
Coppas wanna stop us but they are so lame
Boring cash warrants put a claim on our fame

All I wanna do is (Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!)
And I [click] {Cha-ching}
And take your money

High rise homes, limos
Paper planes crash into Zippos
Coming when we get ‘em
Out on bail, above the system

No one in the country can work it like us
Disappear your life savings with a stylus
We drain every asset like liquidat’us
And then pack ‘em up in the back of our trucks

All I wanna do is (Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!)
And I [click] {Cha-ching}
And take your money

The Lion Never Sleeps

The Lion watches its prey

It's the pursued and the pursued
But which is which
As Nature plays
The game

Sometimes the hunter
Becomes the prey
Not knowing that
What is most apparent, Isn't at all.

Until in the final moment
The game is revealed
And the aggressor is
Captured, ending the play.

The nesting osprey
Need feed the hungry mouths
And pursues fish in the still waters
Of the nearby pond.

But neither a fish too large nor too small
Will be selected for the nestling's hungry malls
So the osprey circles overhead
Watching the larger fish pursue the small.

She selects the one
Near the surface for her quick
Descent and snatch
Away from the panicked school

And with a flutter of strong wings
The talons grasp the unsuspecting one
That till the moment was the
One pursuing the ones that flee.

Away she struggles with her catch
Back to the nestlings
Where this fish will add to their growing hunger,
Till they emerge to catch their own.

And the lion never sleeps.

Any Road

Oh I've been traveling on a boat and a plane
In a car on a bike with a bus and a train
Traveling there and traveling here
Everywhere in every gear
But oh Lord we pay the price with a
Spin of a wheel - with a roll of a dice
Ah yeah you pay your fare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there
And I've been traveling through the dirt and the grime
From the past to the future through the space and the time
Traveling deep beneath the waves - in
watery grottoes and mountainous caves
But oh Lord we've got to fight
With the thoughts in the head with the dark and tle light
No use to stop and stare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there
You may not known where you came from
May not know who you are
May not have even wondered how
you got this fair
I've been traveling on a wing and a prayer
By the skin of my teeth by the breadth of a hair
Traveling where the four winds blow
With the sun on my face - in the ice
and the snow
But oooeeee it's a game
Sometimes you're cool, sometimes
you're lame
Ah yeah it's somewhere
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there
But oh Lord we pay the price
With the spin of the wheel with the roll of
the dice
Ah yeah, you pay your fare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there
I keep traveling around the bend
There was no beginning, there is no end
It wasn't born and never dies
There are no edges, there is no sides
Oh yeah, you just don't win
It's so far out - the way out is in
Bow to God and call him Sir
But if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

Civil Wars I

Old Ha made his own ice lollies:
Orange and juicy, tuppence each.
Two massive sucks and they were gone;
he always kept them out of reach.

The roads were made from different stuff back then.
Oozing tar would puddle up and bubble
for bare feet and fingers to leave prints in,
and tarry digits always meant trouble.

A brand new school was being built,
Jones's mill was about to fold,
the last of the steam trains were gone
and peace was just eighteen years old.

Broadwood road had an old ford car on bricks.
Douglas Road just one red mini on wheels.
Peter Styvesant cigarettes were cool,
and you could eat milky ways between meals.

New Persil nineteen sixty two
had nothing on Omo or Daz
and Mentadent and Steradent,
kept our teeth looking less than flash.

Local wars were civil enough,
breaking out like a sudden spark
that flared, and died away as fast
at school, at home, or in the park.

It wasn't a park though, in sixty three.
The Martins lived on it in a tin hut.
There was a bank in the middle of it
and a patch of grass that the locals cut.

It doubled as the "football ground"
with a pavilion minus walls
and windows, and no roof or door.
From time to time there were no balls,

but when there was, football was a hard game;
blowners then were as heavy as a head -
ev'ry high ball a life or death affair -
just one header and it was straight to bed.

Us wee boys built our bonfire there,
right in the middle of the pitch,
and all the wood we gathered up
the big boys burned before the fifth.

The old school in the woods would soon be closed;
seven classes, one teacher; it was tough,
ducking wooden dusters and blocks of chalk.
She taught us all she could, even the duff

pupils amongst us learned more than enough
for the simpler lives that old world allowed.
Wilson's "white heat" would soon be turning up,
but we were still miles from the madding crowd.

The Impossible and the Possible.

Poem Title: The struggle to overcome the difference between the Impossible and the Possible
Acrostic Poem 166a

The struggle to overcome the difference between the impossible and the possible.
Hope being the word that springs to mind to link these two opposites to attract.
Eternally wandering Cyber space side by side hooking onto every adjective or verb.

Seeking Impossible causes to take away excuses and make them once more possible.
To overcome the bigoted, blind, self centred mind set of the un-believers.
Reaching corners of the mind that you of Christian or Muslim Faith never thought existed.
Unless you have spent all your life on earth in a cocoon not within real time.
God has chosen you to teach the differences between the Impossible and Possible.
Given that if at first you don`t succeed... You`ll get it right next time.
Love for all your Fellow Men and Women may seem Impossible. Trust me it`s the only way.
Every possibility, has been at sometime within it`s life...seemed Impossible.

Take the making of a silk purse from one sows ear. If you will
Or the finding of a needle in a hay-stack or the abolition of third world hunger and the like.

Or the creation of the Love of Nation unto Nation... The end to all War or domination
Very nearly every single problem has a solution, indeed sometimes many solutions do exist.
Electricity, how unbelievable to the even the wisest man once upon a time thought “impossible”
Radio waves converted into the sweetest sounds ever heard by mortal Man
Communication instant Chat across the Globe in real time ….one to one...”Impossible”
Of loving commitment between different creeds and cultures without ever meeting possible.
Mighty soon God will look down on earth and see the two words rolled into one!
Entreating the Impossible always Possible and the Possible never Impossible.

The struggle to overcome the difference between the Impossible and the Possible.
Holy Holy Holy, Eureka, Glory be! We are getting there, I do believe I really do believe.
Eternally where two Poets or more can get together to speak as one, in one Like-minded.

Difference between the Impossible and the Possible are reduced to nil
In practical terms every metaphor, rhetoric, noun or verb or adjective can be polished.
From the most impossible dream into the possible reality of the finest prose ever written.
From the dullest of dyslectic mutterings to the most flowery of sweetest love songs.
Endlessly tripping from the lips of stranger meeting stranger, wisest verse ever heard.
Re-acting opposites attracting the Impossible with the Possible. Judge for yourselves.
Enacting with the humble Poet that composed this message. You may never chance to meet.
Never in a Thousand years of trying, these chances, sure don't happen every day.
Catch the Impossible catch on the very boundaries of your mind to make a difference.
Every chance that one single catch will win your team the Game.

By making then the Impossible Possible, you have changed in one action the life you have.
Every Impossible thought can then be dismissed from your mind possibly forever
The sun to leave the sky, the rivers all run dry, a baby not to cry ….Impossible.
We have that song within our mind, which keeps our feet upon the ground
Every now and then to be able to accept that all things are not Possible.
Even Magicians from time to time cannot turn however hard they try by Day and
Night the experiments to turn base metals into Gold, for no good reason!

The Gold that they seek is common currency to any Poet to compose
Heroic Epic verses Odes, Rhyming Verse and translations left right and centre.
Ethereal Gifts making sense of the hopeless jumble of English words and Idioms.


Impossible smilies such as impracticable, unfeasible, unworkable, unattainable, inconceivable.
Measured against the conceivable by removing the whole reason for failure or excuse to fail.
Possible solutions are always potentially available to the ever open mind of a true Poet
Obtain if you will the very unobtainable, for if you believe in God you most probably will
Subjected to the most absurd verbal abuse of an un-romantic Philistine or carping Critic.
Stand up upon your highest tip-toe.tall as you can be, yell and yell, making yourself heard.
In so doing even an ugly Giant, fearsome, fire -breathing ogre will be confused for the moment.
Blinded by the Impossible Beauty of the Prose you Write and the clever songs you sing.
Like the charming of a deadly Cobra, mesmerized, into loving you and every living thing.
Every time you may have doubt creeping into your positive progress in Life with negativity.

Awake in that moment and assume that Nothing is Nothing Like as Impossible as it seems.
Nothing was ever impossible to God the one true creator, he passes on his skill to you ..
Do not be lead to believe by others that your way of life is ludicrous, if it works for you.

The struggle to overcome the difference between the Impossible and the Possible.
Herculean. If you stop to think about it, best have the courage of faith that you will resolve.
Each and everything you ever put your mind to, unacceptably, out of the question!


Practicable, solutions and compromise, dilutes the acid contamination to perfection.
Oh, I have seen this in my Life so many times before, as I hope to see many times again.
So take away any silly excuse for failure, place the tools to make the unthinkable thinkable.
Substitute the negatives for a positive frame of mind...the unreasonable to being reasonable.
Illogical thoughts and actions you convert by your process of logical practical analysis
Before too long, my goodness, there it is before your very eyes, the “ Solution”
Like a magic wand, covered in fairy dust, making every impossible task possible in real time.
Earth took it`s creator only six days to design and several million to get it “ How it is

Acrostic poem written … 8th March 2010 to 11th March 2010

Wonder

Sometimes people make you think
Of such unbelievable things it makes you blink
Like, why would I have this thought in my head?
Then only at night when your in bed
Is when you'll start to realize
What they actually meant

Eleven rules of football

I took my little boy
to a nearby football pitch
He said he was tired
of playing hide and seek
He now wanted a football
to play around and kick

As he clutched my hand
I spoke to him
and tried to make him understand
the eleven rules of football
taking into consideration
that he was quite small

Now rule number one
Football is made of eleven strong men
When one or two are naughty
you may still get away
with playing nine or ten

Rule number two
When a member of your crew
hits the ball into the net
A goal is scored
that I can place a bet
For I am very sure

Rule number three
The maximum number of players
you can substitute is three
It does not cost a dime
It is totally free

Rule number four
There are rules you must comply with
When a team commits an offense
named a foul
before the game can commence
A small advantage has to be given
to the otherside

Rule number five
A freekick
is given after a foul
Sometimes awarded after
unnecessary dives

Rule number six
When you are shown a card that is yellow
Its time for your temper to mellow
or you will get the referee quite mad
and he will dismiss you with a red card

Rule number seven
A penality is like heaven
It is awarded
when a player breaks the rule
maybe by using his hand as a tool
to play the ball inside the penalty box
its time for him to go back to school

Rule number eight
A thrownin
Is when the ball is kicked out of the field
It's one of footballs favorite sins

Rule number nine
Offside is
When you are the only one running
alone to score a winning goal
you must hesitate
till you see a single soul

Rule number ten
A game lasts
for ninety minutes
You are beat
When your team has less goals than the other
That is when you must admit defeat

Rule number eleven
when your team is losing
you have to sing something amusing
saying
All we want is a goal
While we are dressed in coloured charcoal

Now my little boy
I said
These are the eleven rules of football
lets go and practise inside the sports hall
