Soccer: More Than a Game

Like military men, they toe the line.
Each with only one mission in mind.
Pass the guards and let the ball roll,
one last dodge to the right,
defense hold!
Bruised and battered,
ankles twist.
Fallen Defender, replace him quick!
Lost position, try something new.
Fast break down the middle,
let it go through.
High in the air, the ball seems to float.
All eyes on it and finally…….goal!
