Pigskin rests
for a season….
after tiny eyes
watch the Game’s end;
learning how
to play in life –
win or lose,
our response is
the homework we send.
Make sure
the strategy’s tight,
knowing each play
in the Guide….
to show our children
to enjoy life;
instructing them
when to hide.
No, it’s not after being
mowed on the field;
when we may not
have scored points at all.
See that’s the time
to begin to get tough:
Growl in the face of defeat,
hold your head high
and stand tall.
See the time
to run away and rest
is when you know the plan…
so you can
come back to the field
of Life and say
this is where I will stand!
