Bike Soccer

The lot was empty, no cars at all
The perfect time for a game of ball
They hopped on their bikes two to a team
For a game that many consider extreme

They pedaled their bikes as fast as they could
Trying to get the ball twixt two pieces of wood

The screech of the tires as they make their turns
The squeal of the brakes as they pull up short
All of these actions made their hearts churn
All the excitement in the name of the sport

Bobby hit the ball with his back wheel
Timmy kicked it as he whistled by
The game was played with much zeal
Neither team wanted to end in a tie

Billie stretched up and took a header
While Jimmie blocked with his body and bike
It was hard to tell which team was better
Both of them played so much alike

All these shenanigans under the sun
Was just the act of kids having fun

The ball went up and down the lot
The contest was tough and well fought
All four were victors there in the end
’cause all had fun playing with friends
