All About Football


Go into any town in Texas
and they will tell you
about their high school football team
in Texas it's all about football
they're darn proud of their hometown team
and turn out big every Friday night
bright lights shining
the parking lot full
pom poms
marching bands
the stands full of parents
pumped up and screaming their heads off
you don't have to ask
what the team's name is
just see the water tower.

Sounds great, d. Are you a male or a female? I am guessing male. Nice poem, it captures the atmosphere well.

These lines bring to mind a 1970s visit to Louisiana when I was
taken by the US family to a local football game. I got a bit
confused trying to work out what was going on (like Americans
with cricket, I imagine), but the atmosphere alone was worth the
effort. Loved the razzamatazz!! ?
