The Win

The Win

A Poem by Judy Ponceby

My son's favorite topic.

Two lines of helmeted lineman,
And there's a guy named Ken.

He's got his hands on the ball
Then he yelled his call.

Looking left and right, he calls out "Hike!"
He throws the ball to Mike.

Mike's on the run with ball in hand,
Then he got canned.

Jimmy grabbed him and threw him down
Then he lost the ball and Brendan found

In the rough and tumble with the ball
In a big old crazy brawl,

He had come out of the pile with a fumble
He had a hard tumble.

But he leaped to his feet
He took off away from the fleet.

Running for the endzone
He scores and wins the game!

He owned!

My 12 year old son Ian and I alternated writing lines for this. I enjoyed working with him on his favorite subject of football and enjoyed him working with me on my favorite past time.

A plain and simple prose that speaks to many a person, the mus rarely invokes the power to challenge, but you have given the world a happy, positive way of looking at the world of sports, I truly like it, well done, good read.
