Jerry Knight (Basketball Coach)
Here we are in the middle of a crisis
Kids aren’t practicing, games are being forfeited,
And I’m listening to a lecture
From a little man
About the need to park “Head First”
In the lot behind our library.
Taylorville is coming apart
Because of adults
Who think that everything can be legislated,
That revenue streams are king,
That power comes with a certificate or a badge,
So, I’m joining the bitch brigade.
Shut up, everyone,
Take your signs,
Your lack of perspective, and
Your sense of entitlement
Back to whatever thorny bush you are from.
Just shut up, already.
