The Winning and the Whining
"...from the back and the front...be real and precise about your last stunt!" - a poem.
|The winning and whining, that’s just it;
A tasty dessert, like a banana split.
The smooth, juicy fruit and the frozen, sweet dream,
And cherries on top of that cool, whipped cream.
Something is bothering you – true, my dear,
The wrong timing for such a poor break, it’s clear;
You struggle and play so hard for a win,
Then some choo-choo train blows, and your wheels just spin.
But just playing a sport is the sweetest thing, too –
Never keep pouting, explode, or feel blue.
You’re never alone, and you’re constantly awake,
Just physically endure and have fun, for Pete’s sake!
The coolest rationale for having much fun,
Is knowing what you did, and how much you have done.
Explore your position, from the back and the front,
And be real and precise about your last stunt!
When you’re finally finished for the rest of the season,
Remember that sportsmanship and control are the reason,
For believing in your team and your physical ability,
For all are great showmen, so tireless and gritty…
