Peasants of the Playbook

Peasants of the Playbook

You’re peasants of the playbook
Yet you think you know the reason
For the failure of the team
That does the best it can this season

And, massing in the mews
You’ve raised the mewl to a mew
Questioning the mastery
Of a coach as good as two

By what method do you meter 
The mettle of this man
He coaches and he councils 
And he does the best he can

With material you’ve provided 
He’s positioned at the mandrel
Where he hammers out their character
It’s more than you could handle

Your mantle flounces flutter 
When subjected to such folly
Your seething is better served 
If you’d support the coach, by golly

It’s then we’ll see the sextant 
Guide the gridiron guild to glory
And add a happy chapter
To this teams’ historic story
