A Wrestling Poem

by Patrick Lockwood

Do you think I am just a jock Then you only know me like 6 o’clock People think I’m just a jock and into joking You should get to know me, start poking

Sure I am a joker and into sports But not everything is about the court If you really know me you know I care about school School is what really makes you cool

I do well in school and care about my grade Good grades is what really gets you paid So don’t judge me by first glance Get to know me give me a chance
