My English 12 teacher is a big Ohio State fan. We talk trash constantly about our two teams. All of last week we were going back and forth in anticipation of the big game. On Friday, the day before the game he assigned us to write a sonnet. Normally I am not very good at English, but I decided to write it just for him, in the aftermath of the game. I, like everyone else was disappointed by the score but its not worth dwelling on them.
To make things interesting I decided to post it on here. Its not the greatest poem ever written, so feel free to add any comments you might think of to help me improve it.
On a sunny winter day in Michigan
My team ran under a banner that read Go Blue
Hoping desperately for a win
And deeply enraged by that terrible scarlet hue
And then Mr Sweater Vest took the field
With his quarterback who thinks everyone murders and steals
Claiming that his team would never yield
With the traitor linemen who eats pizza at all five meals
And on some players final Senior Day
Tate and Vincent made a good read
And Graham and the D came to play
But the enemy still took the lead
In the end the Wolverines did not defeat their foe,
But hey, at least they don't have to live in Columbus O-H-I-O
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this, and Go Blue!
