Poems & Rhymes

Five soccer players standing in the locker room door.
One had a sore knee
And then there were four.

Four soccer players down on their knees.
One made a goal
And then there were three.

Three soccer players looking up at you.
One made a dribble
And then there were two.

Two soccer players running in the sun.
One was offsides
And then there was one.

One soccer player standing all alone.
She decided to go home
And then there were none.
