I coach boys basketball now

I'm not worried about the score

But my first basketball game

We lost 47-4

These middle schoolers are trying 

I can't give them an F

But one of our vocal players

He blamed the loss on the refs

If we had only lost by two 

That reasoning I could see

But the problem with that argument

Is we lost by 43 

Look it was 47-2

Until only 10 seconds left 

So we have some work to do

We really can't blame the refs 

I asked each player afterwards

How we improve after this slaughter

One boy spoke up immediately

He said we need to drink more water

I think we need more than water

Maybe we need some Gatorade

I know we need some prayer 

Before another game is played
