An Open Letter To Brett Favre

We’re sick of hearing all about your plight.
Old vets should step aside at close of play.
Step aside and make your exit, stage right.

Though pundits at their end know the time’s right
Because their words aren’t interesting, they
Make us sick talking all about your plight.

Although we saw you crying on that night,
And you asked what might have been in Green Bay,
Step aside and make your exit, stage right.

Wild men who threw the footballs into flight
And learn, too late, they sent them the wrong way,
Are sick of hearing all about your plight.

Grave fans, in spring, wondering in hindsight
If you should have blazed like a meteor, say,
“Step aside and make your exit, stage right.”

You’re already descending from your height.
Please go, or at least tell us if you’ll stay.
We’re sick of hearing all about your plight.
Step aside and make your exit, stage right.
