A Sport Sonnet

Hot weather makes practices exhaust me.
Stressful drills leave teams down and sorrowful.
During rest, we get shade under a tree,
Afterwards we all feel more powerful.

As games start, player's energy released.
The coaches encouraged and reassured.
Score becomes tied and needs to be increased,
Another point is scored and win secured.

Feelings of joy and triumph fill the court.
The other team is sad and defeated.
We celebrate this great, wonderful sport.
If all goes right, it shall be repeated.

Through hard work and dedication the game is won.
This phenomenal sport is very fun.

What is your problem? If you don't like it, either give constructive criticism or say, "I didn't like it that much" and find one you do like. If you think his/her poem is that bad, write your own, for goodness sake! Your comments are so rude, that it makes your username ironic.

This is so bad that I cannot think of a decent slam to bash this bowel movement with.

Rule #1:  Critics are NOT allowed to use the word "awesome."

Yeah, well critics should not just bash eachother's work without even giving a reason why thay dont like it.  I bet you didn't even read this.  give constructive criticism.  Give ways it could be improved without being mean.  I'd like to see you write a better poem.  You seem extremely immature.
