Die Kickers frönen noch den Hallenkick

Trotz Regen (vielleicht auch mal ein wenig Schnee) nutzen die Sambakickers noch jede Gelegenheit die Pille zu treten – frei nach Hanks Motto “the laughing heart”.
Für alle, die das Gedicht nicht kennen, hier:

The Laughing Heart by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.
