MIRACLE

MIRACLE!

Now    hear sports prime time
“Amazing!    Spectacular!”
Just two of the words
“Hey!    You gotta be kiddin’”
Does he know how to play ball!”

“One of the greatest”
Some say he IS the greatest!”
Just incredible!”
“Bob    that’s some kinda atha-lete!”
“Three hundred pounds of muscle”

“It’s a miracle!”
“You mean HE’S a miracle”
“He’s at the fifty –
Forty    thirty    twenty-five
Reverses field at the five
STUPENDOUS RUN    A TOUCHDOWN!”

WHAT AN ATHA-LETE!”
The magic words spilling forth
At top of his lungs
Had you pressed the mute button
Just another game

But the fans love noise
The roar will deaden the mind
Loudmouth has said squat
Has stated the obvious
Big mouth says    “Watch but don’t think”

I am an avid football fan - especially college football - the poem is not about disliking football, but about some - not all - of the brainless announcers.
