This Is Our Shot

It’s the small clubs that are the backbone of tournaments like the US Open Cup. This is a Rondeau in their honor.

The Poetic Game by Michael E. Quigg - combining soccer and poetry

This is our shot at hist'ry's call

An opening for clubs tho' small

The path is arduous and long

On we sing the underdog's song

United we fight, ne'er to fall


Our names will be hard to recall

And tho' hardships we will befall

We are an eleven man throng

This is our shot


On this path we may have to crawl

And face the climb of glory's wall

But in this contest we belong

Our heart and pride are ever strong

Our vict'ry would be won for all

This is our shot
