Football Fever

Football fever
Gripping all over
Fierce battles
Fittingly fought
Triumphant team
Winning accolades
Late night parties
Crowded countrymen
Celebrations galore
Shining south africa
Dazzling lighting
Quizzing questions
Is it day in night!
I turnaround
Weeping west africa
Crying countrymen
Impoverished infants
Hunger stricken
Poverty at peak
Food ball fever
Gripping all over
Quizzing questions
Is it night in day!

Very telling poem about the struggles of Africans, that the whole world needs know. Your writing is beautifully strewn with imagery laced in with a simplicity that Turkey tells the story you are conveying. I enjoyed your work. PEACE.

Great..I also love the literary work...It gives a feel that football is a way of life, yet you have hungry infants and the likes amidst the excitement how can you piece it! ! ! ! Goes perfect with is it 'day in the night' or is it 'night in the day'...

Good work but poverty is not synonymous with West Africa.It is like the air we breathe.It is everywhere.However, football is a major palliative to the pains of poverty in this part of the world.Interestingly, it has wiped away poverty from many families whose children play professional football all over the world.It is indeed ' food ball.
