Today in Ron Cook Poetry: "Soccer in Cranberry"

By Artistry

Is it me?
Am I wrong?
If the answer to those questions is yes ...
Good.
I'm proud of it.
Whoopee!
This is a good thing? 
Shouldn't they, maybe, you know, have had the door closed?
That really would have been disturbing.
That was rather humorous, actually.
No dives for those fellows.

Real men, not soccer players.
Only in soccer.
Ghana?
I'm telling you, you can't.
We're supposed to beat Ghana, right?
But that's silly.

I don't think they'd ever play it in Cranberry.
