The Footballer's Wife

Last night, in front of thousands

he placed the penalty ball on the ground

he balanced himself

he stepped back for a perfect kick

he ran as fast as lightning

and kicked a perfect ball into the goal

the audience cheered and roared

the goalkeeper, no ghost of a chance

they said it was amazing.
This morning, in our little garden

I ask him to play ball with our 5-year-old

he gets up from the bench

he reaches the garden

he trips over the baby ball

he falls flat on his nose

and is injured

you wouldn't think it is possible!
