Tragedy Strikes a Double Blow

Tragedy Strikes a Double Blow

 

By Elton Camp

 

Crying,  “Woe, oh woe is me”

Scores of mournful faces I see

What dire calamity did befall

To elicit this distressed call?

 

The Crimson Tide fell from grace

Lost its hope of getting first place

And to make dire matters worse

Auburn lovers also must curse

 

Football fanatics suffer strife

About what’s important in life

I’m glad the fates did choose

That both of them should lose

 

An unseemly display not to see

As supporters shout with glee

Coaches as virtual gods elevated

Rather now, they may be hated

 

Cries of outrage soon to spring

“Winning is the only thing!”

Importance put in the wrong place

Reality, fanatics must now face

 

Tide and Tigers alike in defeat

Humble pie, fanatics have to eat

But a lesson they won’t learn

Sports worship thus to spurn
