The battle to keep the best and send the worthy rest home - the chase, the spirit - a poem
|The notion that tryouts reveal who to keep
Allowing these coaches to gather their peep.
Examine their mission, folks seeking to play.
Knowing their talents, come challenged all day.
A vital conditioning, crossing the line -
Progressive resistance now looking real fine;
A group of survivors head to round two,
While others have handsomely left right on cue.
At the close of more rounds, now truly applause;
Circus beginnings now vibrate with cause -
The actual taking of people who fit,
The highest dimension, the truth, let it sit.
The drama, high stakes, no dubious claims,
A reaction so promised, now stoking the flames.
Engineering the focus of high, sovereign rule,
A gift of reality and every great tool.
