A Common Goal - Poem by Dan Brown

The scores of people on every
side, cheer their team on.
The only event where both sides are
in, not only uniform,
But their
Their shared desire to
To be physically, and tactically,
On the battlefield, the Generals lead their
with admirable conduct.
Their only weapons, the skills the have learnt.
Shots rifle from every angle, and
people are injured left, right, and centre.
Still the surrounding supporters
And mock.
We’re trying to win and we’re
Fighting the clock.

    Sport is like war, but much more civilized... at least nobody dies (usually) . Nice metaphor!
