Extra Time II

My father wanted extra time
But the sun rolled over the line.

The referee blew her whistle
Like winter through a thistle.

The ball bounced off the post
Like the spirit from the host.

The penalty was missed
Like a vision in the mist.

In extra time my father thought
Time’s flight itself is caught,

But like a shooting star
Extra time was naught.
