Spherical things into pockets are falling,
riches in colourful arcs' ends calling,
teatime and honey and flowers recalling,
money to win in the middle, we're all in!

Park my car into the gym's space ingressing,
someone's supporting me while I'm bench pressing,
ladies with my leopard-print clothes impressing,
notice a stain on my shirt while undressing!?

Selling the poles from my fence I've been musing,
wrote on this forum online I'm now using,
offered to mail to a place of their choosing,
moving the goals when my argument's losing.

Freeze! Halt! Prevent that young man from departing,
right past a red traffic sign he is darting,
people are waiting for bus ride's restarting,
consonants start bed, car, tree, dark and parting.

How are we related?

My observation:

All the lines in the 1st verse are describing types of POTS (Billiard ball pot, the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, pot of honey, jackpot).
All the lines in the 2nd verse are describing different interpretations for SPOT (A parking spot, 'spotting' someone at the gym, leopard spots, spot on a stained shirt).
All the lines in the 3rd verse are describing different usages of the word POST (Fence post, forum post, mail post, goal post).
All the lines in the 4th verse are describing usages of the word STOP (Stop!, stoplight, bus stop and 'stop consonants' (such as b, c, t, d & p).

So these are all anagrams of one another. (Which, this answerer opts to say, is the tops!)
