Ballon d’Or

 
Ballon d’Or
 
because i know my days are numbered
like football jersey
i run with the single purpose
of netting the ball in the net
 
soon, this 90 years
of running around the sales pitch
 
hustling
from post to post
 
dribbling
past obstacles swift and slow
 
falling
on hay and dust
 
rising
unto green grasses
 
heading
the weight of it all
 
‘chesting’
out the hurt
 
striking
hard from the corner
 
…and
 
netting it in!
 
shall my victory song
ring among spectators
 
soon, i’ll be ballon d’Or
 
until then,
it’s game time
 
[i’ll smile later]
