Gallops for Grads

from by Cash Crop



Gulick approaches Nesmith, inquiring of new forms; of competitive displays, physical but all-indoors; winter's start of ninety-one, Springfield was in for some change; yet was not where Jimmy found the finest team to play the game

fifty-three at one-thirteen, winter's lows at no degrees

Page ditches Ontario, gets tenured at McDougall; takes the reins of the girls' squad, wipes the floor with other schools; post-ceremony are dubbed Commercial Graduates Club; five years gone with no respite, outside world given the shove

edge before it got flattened straight, nix on romance, sucks to dates

Dorothy Daisy Connie Winnie Eleanor and Nellie winning; Shamrocks plucked and then discarded, Knits unraveled brokenhearted; but where are the biopics the books the tapes the interviews; where is the anniversary parade footage on the news

have you had Olympic gold denied to you when it was owed; six-to-one in foreign lands, earning worth with yr two hands; has yr familial pride been judged ignored and cast aside; have you vanquished all yr foes with victory sharing their woes

differences become divides, injustices endorsed with pride

can you eat sleep dream work breathe yr whole life as just one thing; can you narrow yr focus to just one point of interest; can you handle constant stress while no one cares about yr best; can you fade out completely, into nothing, not even memory

social disappearances, historical revisions

more than likely we're just dying eating sleeping multiplying; headcount numbers at the pyre will not help to increase the size of yr fire; but maybe the people near you remember and dearly miss you; so yr post-death reputation ain't empty documentation
