As A Child - Poem by Uloia Norris Moore

I was told by others
quaint phrase
disprove it

Not how game
is played
win or loss

Integrity gained mutual
observation of rule
sides both even

Wise coach prevails
not thumb in the eye
tell the big lie
break his leg if he
be quicker than thee

Now all grown up in reality
have been del't such
blow that the aforesaid
mentioned at the top
were adult words

Why then speak to a child
in manner such as that

The money I know
great expense was
reason young bodies
broken and bent

Had known true truth
would have still played
spirit of game after grown
was rui'nt

Show of course
must go on
