An Apology

I mentioned this particular one earlier in the week here, and decided that I ought to post it sooner rather than later, so here it is.  The back story here is that a particular friend of mine (who is rather competitive, sporty and rather good at sports to boot) would always end up with a multiple-day headache as a result of playing football against me.  The first time was a failed tackle when I went for the ball, skimmed the top of it and tripped him over.  This time, I was sticking close trying to get around him to tackle again, and as I brought my head down and stepped in, he brought his head up and unfortunately stepped the way I was coming from.  My headache only lasted to the next day.  Enjoy, comment, share, up to you 🙂

 

An Apology
You have to give me credit,
For my sheer consistency.
Since you always get a headache,
When you play football against me.
 
I never intend to hurt you,
And in a way you should be flattered.
Since it’s because you are so good,
That you end up getting battered.
 
So this is my way of saying sorry,
And if it’s any consolation to you.
Each time I try to take you out,
I end up injured too.
