A round leather game
Of twenty two
Running after a ball
In an open hall.

The keepers
Manning opposite post
Awaiting the shots
From hot players.

An individual
With two cards and a whistle
Running on the field
Within the wall.

Two individuals
Holding flags
Running without a fall
In a game of ball.

The game of football
Unifies the world
A game so cherished
A world cup.
