An Ode To Water Polo

As you slip in the water
The coolness gives you a chill
And the players set in a line
Six on six, what a thrill

The ref blows his whistle
And you lunge at your foe
Where's the ball? Where's the air?
Come on, let's go!

You're friends around you shout
'Dump! Go! Weak!'
The coach's face turns bright red
And you meet cheek to cheek

As you beat through the water
Being drowned by a stranger
You toss the ball too far
This can only mean danger

But your friends never fail you
They leap for the sphere
Without hesitation, they shoot
And our team gives a cheer

The rhinos across from you
Snarl with anger and wrath
You call out their number
And calculate a path

Ten, nine, eight'
The clocks running down.
Steal the ball! Give your all!
Go, swim around!


Seven, six, five'
There's no chance, right?
But you break free from the de-
And the ball takes its flight

Three, two, one'
With a single pump
As the ball hits the back
Of the net with a thump

No one can believe
We've won the game
The other team
Is put to shame

As for you, you scream loud
There's no other bliss
In the whole entire world
Other than this
