Football and Youngsters

Brimming with energy the youngster explodes onto the pile
Stored for days emotion wells up rapidly in crashing style.
Oblong object attracts thousands of eyes seeking glory
Hands magnetically grasp frozen leather under light sea.

Respect on Oblong Square shapes a child for destiny
Courage displayed weekly grants new earned trophy
Discipline taught lessons needed for growing humanity
Obedience lends itself to manners of generosity.

Regulations ordered by self contentment apes life
Growing older rapidly dissolves the vigor of youth
Teamwork encourages cooperation through strife
Victory earned shows the necessity of uneasy truth.
