A Sport Sonnet

By
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.

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.
