Perspectives: 325/365

Eight Bars Parents

The Retort…

What gives?
The whole thing gives,
It gives coaches power and pay
With nothing guaranteed on the backend
For us.
We pay, they play, and nothing happens
College dreams are dashed,
Pro dreams are slashed, and
All we get is a certificate, shitty banquet, and a handshake.

We think that’s wrong.
The coaches are not doing their jobs,
So how about we move that money
To where it can do more good.
Band kids are just happy playing,
They have no real hope of playing in college
They would appreciate the extra dough.
They could get whatever they need
Uniforms, hats, a Gator, or something.
That’s what gives.
