This Friday, a welcome distraction
And proof that the sport has gained traction:
The all-out bonanza
doth merit a stanza
The World Cup swings into action!

And speaking of sports-laden dross
I s’pose that young Stephen can toss
They call him The Savior
Because his behavior
Brings Pirates to ruinous loss

Not everyone had a great week
Dear Helen, oh why did you speak?
She used to have clout
Ms. Get-the-hell-out
Seems now she’s a mean ol’ antique

A DUI tarnished your name?
And put your poor mother to shame?
She thinks you were crunked
And that’s why you flunked
But maybe your test was to blame
