HAIL AND FAREWELL

Hence twirlers, Texas Leaguers, sox,
Walks, balks, fouls, pitcher's box,
A vaunt shortstops, third basemen, flies,
Strikes, balls, doubles, stealing tries!

Exit all such, admit punts tossed;
Fullbacks, ends, yards gained, yards lost,
Headgear, cleats, and T formations,
Reverse, line plunge, tackling sensations.

Pack suits, socks, caps in naphthalene,
For sunny climes depart, to dream
Of contracts fat, embodying raises,
And next year's fans to sing your praises.

Arise cheer leaders, students, bucket-handler,
Fight, team fight, for dear old Chandler,
Pill, horsehide sphere, hail and farewell,
Come oblate spheroid and college yell!
