A Footballer’s Life Is So Much Fun

A footballer’s life is so much fun

Getting paid to kick and run

If there’s something they have won

It’s a contract worth a trillion

You see them smile. You see them laugh

When posing for a photograph

Fans dying for their autographs

Like they’re pink polka-dotted giraffes

They drive around in fancy cars

Meet celebrities and superstars

Drink wine and smoke cigars

In the city’s expensive bars

At the peak of their shallow fame

They find themselves beautiful dames

Who act in films with royal names

And take home awards and acclaims

Here I am with my loyal cat

Writing about this and that

Growing old with belly fat

Such’s a life of a poet
