FOOTBALL by W.T. Goodge

What gives to Winter time its zest,
Expands your lungs and swells your chest,
What is a tomfool game at best?
      Why, football!

What barks your shins and "busts" your tile And rips your pants in festive style: What makes the surgeon softly smile? Why, football!
What thought it be a dangerous game? Without some danger sport is tame, And so we love it all the same, Our football!
