Whistle

Radiating, eardrums ringing, loud and proud

Listen up! The coach is talking

That sound reverberates beyond the crowd

 

The uproar is so wild you can’t think aloud

It stuns like the witness of a suave beauty walking

Radiating, eardrums ringing, loud and proud

 

The Jock kicks forth with the grace of a cloud Swish!

The sound of the goalies failed blocking

That sound reverberates beyond the crowd

 

The coach’s speech was caught and hauled

They score! Out-pours the sound of victory locking

Radiating, eardrums ringing, loud and proud

 

Outside the crowd a spectator sighs. The lout!

A scream forms where people weren’t looking

That sound reverberates beyond the crowd

 

A quiet death amongst the noise of the proud

There lies the coach, his heart attacking

Radiating, eardrums ringing loud and proud

No sound reverberates beyond the crowd
