The NFL Sonnet

The Main Man. Invented the 2-minute drill. Invented NFL charisma. And black high tops.

The NFL Sonnet

Nobody can tell whether it matters or not
Because it does and it doesn’t
John Facenda had the voice
That always manly matters

He saw and read the poetry
But Facenda died and now it’s only
RAP and guys with guns and weed
In their cars late in the nightly tweet.

It doesn’t really matter at all
We can live without–
Without end zone dancing
And rhyming, nightclub shooting

I remember the Main Man
And all who played with him.

What are we talking about? The greatest NFL quarterback in history. And high tops!

Can't see'em! Wait!

Can’t see’em! Wait!

Yeah. You wish you had those magic shoes.

Yeah. You wish you had those magic shoes.

Oh, NOW you see'em.

Oh, NOW you see’em.

And here.

The Main Man.

The Main Man.

Why I still have high tops. And why I’m still the greatest QB on the Internet.
