I remember the shame seeing
  the team's hat on its proud antlers
 in the school's hallway,
how I wept for the mockery
...not our team's loss.

  2. Suz Ma'am,
    True enough, the team pride can be very strong. Its strength determines success or failures. Brilliant!

  6. Oh yes, Suz!

    I had trouble joining in with this one because of the reasons that you put into words so well.

    Well done. x

  8. his proud antlers
    a rack for a hat
    deep sadness
    a disrespect
    for the beast's noble life
    is what I see...glad some of my blogger friends agree
    thank you

  10. I had a friend whose husband hung a head on every single wall of her living room. I often wondered how she could stand to live with him.
