The Swimming Coach

Everyone gather around
When you hit that water
I want you to think I am Michael Phelps
I am the dolphin
I am the barracuda
I will slice the water like a knife through butter
I will attack the water like a rabid badger after the earthworm
I wll attack the water like the Bears attacked the Patriots
If you are not ready to win
If you are not ready to give it all you have
Then I want you to leave now!
Go home and play the splishy splash in the bathtub
Go and play with your rubber ducky
Go and play dive bomber with your Star Wars action figures!
Now everyone put your hand in
Swim to Win!
Swim to Win!
Swim to Win!

I had never thought of a sports exhortation as poetry but it works here. Did the coach's team win? smile

windyweatherly, thanks for the comment. I am glad you are enjoying your time in Australia. It reminds me of Canada, as they have more elbow room than most nations.teddybear dancing dance
