Poem from Booked by Kwame Alexander

on the pitch, lightning faSt,

dribble, fake, then make a dash


player tries tO steal the ball 

lift and step and make him fall


zip and zoom to find the spot

defense readies for the shot


Chip, then kick it in the air

take off like a Belgian hare


shoot it left, but watch it Curve

all he can do is observe


watch the ball bEnd in midflight

play this game faR into night
