Football Season 2017
Autumn is coming, I buy all the snacks,
sports magazines line my magazine racks.
Football is the king of fall, a special time of year,
break out the chips and a six-pack of beer.
I put on my team’s jersey, and a ball cap too,
we’re a Buckeye house, no room for “Go Blue.”
It’s scarlet and grey, a touchdown again,
at the end of every game, Ohio State will win!
As I sit up in bed and look at the wall,
my beautiful swimsuit model standing tall.
It’s Miss April, I lay back down in bed,
I place my pillow, over my face and head.
Five more months to go, until football will begin,
I head to the kitchen, and grab a bottle of gin.
It seems that it all, was only a dream,
I’m so pissed at the world, that I let out a scream.
My wife walks in, and smirks at me,
she holds up the newspaper, for me to see.
It’s game day for real, the season has begun,
So, I grab my snacks; it’s time to have fun.
OHIO STATE 49 INDIANA 21
