Perspectives: 176/365

Michael Dawson (Football Player, Eight Bars Parents)

We honored the pre-season,
Just to see what would happen.

The parents and administrators
Kept talking their BS.

We also wanted to see who was in,
Who saw something greater than football.

Some of the guys began to crack,
Practice became tough.

I had to tell, Coach.
We were going to strike the season.

“Hey, Coach,
This has nothing to do with you,
But we’re sick of adults
Thinking they know everything.”

He told me some stuff
About what could happen.

“Thanks, we’ll come back when they back down.”
