while th team is running their plays
while the fans sit and drink and eat their overpriced hotdogs
while the band preforms even though noone listens
while the cheerlaeders jump and make themselves eye-candy for all the adolesence in the stands
while these peoples lives are run by this game
the people outside the field or court
are getting there jobs done
people who didnt make the team or squad are crying or emptying there parents med. cabnets
another game is playing in another town
and the same thing happens there as it happens here

   Dont get me wrong here i dont have anything againts sports but sports running someones life..thats wrong

 "scribere iussit amor" love commanded me to write

HEY!!! People do to listen to the band. They listen to us scream and yell at the other team and make a general ass of ourselfes.  And they listen when we play too, which only happens to be when we actualy are all there and paying attention to the Peter, who isn't always there himself....

Anywho, it is a very nice poem, and most of it is very true, specialy about the cheerleaders.
