S is for Sunrise, Sunset

This is for the football widows out there–guys, you may want to pass.

Sing to the tune of  “Sunrise, Sunset”.

Where is the handsome guy she married?
Where is the love of yesterday?
When did he start to watch the ballgames
           day after day?
Where’s the vacation time he promised?
Where is he on each holiday?
They all are spent in cheering his team
           play after play!
Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset
Happily flow his days
One game following another
          Enhanced by action replays.
Place the popcorn on the table
Drink up the beer, refill the glass
Watch as the batter runs full circle;
          Cheer the fullback’s  pass!
Now the husband’s growing older,
He falls asleep as the game’s begun,
Rousing in time for celebration
          When victory is won.
Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset
Lonely mom endures the years;
One sport season following another;
          She sighs as a new game appears.

Got something to season my kettle of soup? Stir it in and savor the flavor.
