This is dedicated to my Granddaughter, Andrea, the Soccer Player.
I watched your game the other day…
And a wonderful player you are!
I saw you ”kick” that soccer ball
From off the top of your head!
I could barely watch.
I was filled with sudden dread.
Jeter never hit a home run
Minus a bat in his hand.
And he never, ever, used his head
To hit the winning, far reaching, Grand Slam!
Use your head in other ways…
Perhaps to hold your glasses up.
Or even to wear a pretty hat,
Perched high above your ears!
But remember this, and remember it well.
Stop shaking your brains so much!
That’s why they’re encased within your skull.
For you to use for thinking and such!
