Stripes

They both wear black and white, Sport’s fans will see some tonight, As one type skates on frozen water, The other keeps a herd in order. The man can get caught up in media hype, Each has the same angle of stripe, Only one has them down to the toes, And tries to out run the foes. Seeing far away is their asset, Always watching out for a threat, While the other kind may need to hide, Making some calls they seem crossed-eyed. A zebra is born looking like this, All the while, hoping their enemy will miss, Linesmen and refs are known to make a bad call, In the end, it could be a team’s down fall.
