A Mother's Pride

The finest voice on the Broadway stage Cannot compete with a mother’s squawl When her son catches the winning ball, Sending the winning team on a rampage, Causing the losing team to feel outrage. HONORABLE MENTION written July 30, 2021 submitted to "Bite Size Poem No. 16" sponsored by Line Gautier

LOL. You have my permission to use it. I'll be looking for it. You know, truthfully, I don't think it's a real word, although I've heard it all my life.
