A warrior’s body, a warrior’s spirit, a warrior’s heart and soul.
But aging legs betray aging play and waning eye for goal.
Persistance – relentlessly biting at heels, and a roar to the wolf at the door,
Persistant relentlessly leaving the field, a month 7-2, then no more?
Relentlessness begets its own rewards, borne out of perspiration,
A final hurrah, a mark for the ages, a strike pure of desperation.
