Roundabout

The office banter started early
Escalating quickly
Into a full fledged lecture
On the recruiting difficulties
For soccer playing youths
In the grand ole U.S. of A.

Who knew there was so much
Foreign citizenship on college rosters
We all agreed talent pays
And the best play
Curiously, a kid from Guatemala
Who happened to be home schooled
Plays at Messiah

Good for him

The day ended with office banter
Quickly being discussed
To fill the time between work week and weekend
Stories of flipped houses and credit scores
Gave way to some guy’s kids
Who never went to school
Except at home
And his connection to renters in a property
Where they pay their bill in cash and who
Hail from, of all places,
Guatemala

Punch that clock
It’s time to go
