Priorities

Location

Fwooosh,

Into the net,

Goalie’s fingers’ fumble for it,

Miss,

Cheering,

Shouting,

Victory.

 

School.

Announcements,

Congratulations,

Teachers smile,

And tell you

When you need to get your work in

After missing three classes

Each for a game.

 

Next year,

The team is going big,

Traveling the country,

Getting a huge budget,

Never mind the work.

College.

GPA.

SATs.

Sleep.

 

Don’t you know that

Sports

Are all that matters?
