Rookie

I joined the Lincoln soccer team this year

My position for the team was goalie

I blocked the blazing ball and heard the cheer

Then the mistake I made was unholy

 

We had hopes of winning the league, but no

We finished second place instead of first

We failed so miserably, yes we know

It's as if Lincoln soccer were cursed

 

We tried our hardest, but not hard enough

We all hope to do much better next year

Because varsity will be way more tough

Whether I play again is still unclear

 

Thanks to that horrible mistake I made

My debt with the team still goes unpaid
