poem- being Charlie Brown November 19, 2018

The football is set, with enthusiastic support,

This is going to be such a great help!

But instead of the football being held at the perfect angle for the kick that sends it through the goal posts,

Lucy has snatched it up again.  She shrugs.

You wanted to kick for THIS game?

Oh no! The game you get to kick for is three months from now!

Just hold your foot up until then, will you?

  1. I have watched Lucy pull that football back numerous times. Poor ol’ Charlie Brown!

  2. Jim Stewart Says:

    The eternal conundrum.
