Playtime - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

Play time in the school yard
While teachers walked about
A game of soccer we used to play
A can used for the ball
Jumpers we used as goalpost
Every one was the ref.
We gave ourselves famous names
Like Pele, Best or Law
To score a goal caused uproar
It always caused disputes
The goalie shouted it was wide
While others should 'are you blind'
Those were the good old days
When kids knew how to have fun

Topic(s) of this poem: fun, games
