UTB

He spat his words

At my little tin cap

Which kept my thoughts warm

And ruffled the feathers

Behind my ears

They made hand gestures

Which offended

Further than across the field

And shouted hate

Through generations

But when ball hit net

They erupt

And bodies close in on bodies

And it is tender

More tender than they wish to admit
