Poems on Sports

Sports are complex in that they are a way to escape our lives as well as a way to look at our lives in a clearer way. In the world of sports the line of victory and defeat is quite clear. There is no question of what team you are on or what position you play within the team. These things are not always clear in real life. Escaping to the world of sports is an opportunity to think about these questions in our own lives.

You were always such a scrapper
A raging thunderstorm

With great big smiling eyes

With all the bigger guys!"
Dressed in homemade football gear
You raced out towards …

The Love Of The Game

It's Friday night,
I've got a game
We play the Indians,
My best friend's team

My uniform's on
It's only 4 o'clock

He walks on over and hops in the chute
then waits alone with the bull
until the moment when the date is pulled
the dust stirs from the …

The roar of the cheering crowds

Surviving The Bull Ride

The bull is in the gate
You lower yourself to rest on his back
He moos a threatening sound full of hate

Of a very terrible injury.
What would I do if I lost …
