Ode to the Western States Tournament
Despite the icy bite of wind so cold,
A water polo tournament begins.
Ten girls stand on the deck in red and gold
Resolved, in ugly caps, to earn some wins.
The competition’s fierce. It will be tough.
Their enemies are ready to compete
But Northgate’s team is skilled and very buff.
The game will surely end in a defeat.
By overtime, a win is highly sought.
The defense makes a pack of wolves look tame.
A breakaway! She has an open shot:
She pumps the goalie, score! We win the game!
We put Visene® in chlorine-ravaged eyes
And go enjoy our carb-filled bagel prize.
