Parrot Ting Reflection From A Barry University Graduate

There has been much about being on a stage Since I started dealing with that adult style wage The Orange one used to welcome the new year With an evening date filled with cheer Now it says goodbye With a match worthy of a sigh Northerners will descend on the Hard Rocks To continue a tradition started with a stadium built in a residential area with many blocks This edition will include a team having the letters VA And the Gators going south for a stay It should be a Monday night fight That starts the pre party hype This spectacle used to have the reputation of a lighted half time show That had a festive glow Now the rest break has an information take When suits debate behind the desk Trying to use their best journalistic guess It is believed that the changes came When some needed to declare a true official National Champion for their game Now all the schools have a rank with the top ones taking their success to the bank Tradition was shown the door as one network thought in favor of a ratings score But the first change I remember was when the French Quarter seduced the reporters Saying nouvel An Night needed another gridiron fight And they moved the Sugar and spice to the next day which seemed quite nice This did divide the press And created a remote-control mess Many generations passed using voting judging cast to see who was on top in the end And this academic decision made a point giving the notation National Champion to the team who had a responsibility to defend Now they choose four to have a chance to play one extra game more Under the big lights the teams will show their might But is this all right? Or should the student warrior be giving the time off to prepare by reading the second semester books they bought Keep in mind one network boasts all these holiday tailgating toasts All I can tell you is look around And enjoy the sights and sounds All the bowls have a reason To have a positive end to an athletic season When February turns to March And the sophomoric quarterback during the Spring practice feels parch The water will be there due to one of his classmates doing the job since they care It will be the senior who will wonder Was that National Championship just a blunder? Or was it something special for one day to be a king And get this ring that will go along with the graduation thing.
