A Wedding During Football Season

A Wedding During Football Season By Elton Camp It has often wisely been said Football season’s no time to wed Let’s make one thing quite clear It’s only four months of the year So a wedding on the day of a game Is so incredibly selfish and lame Your wedding may be significant to you But football games are important too Those tickets are incredibly hard to get So when nobody attends, don’t have a fit Far down the list your wedding does rate You need to get your priorities straight Rather than put your friends on the spot If you must wed then, use the parking lot During halftime, the ceremony can be done A tailgate reception is elegant and fun

Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. I live in a major football state to the point that it's almost a "religion" to some. Elton

Hi Elton. This is a great and witty poem to bring in the coming football season. And it seems a bit of a warning and a plea for a sympathetic understanding. I enjoyed reading his one and will read more. Well written, my friend..... Robert.

Thanks, Robert. I have lots already posted here, but have largely gotten away from using this site because I can't post pictures with what I write. In many ways, Soup is the best place to post. Elton
