Red Card

Red Card

The card was red,
it had to be,
he broke his leg
in places, three.

The challenge reckless,
no intent,
stupid, feckless,
no harm meant.

Result was clear,
the match was lost,
the lad's career
a heavy cost.

  1. Is this a real event? Sports people really test their bodies to the limits. That’s why I have stuck with recliner sitting, as per that advert you saw.. Those are risks I feel able to manage.
