The game

Made the approach
Trusting the coach
Teaching the game
From its inception
The teachers devotion
For the game passion
Sets the process rolling
Day by day improving

Progress made
Coaches efforts
Match play next step
First step of mix up

Victory not a feat
Defeat should not repeat
More expected
Results disappointed

A year in the sport
A sea change seen
Attitude for all
Become a know it all

Kids start complaining
Parents encouraging
In every issue interfering
Know how acquired suddenly claiming

Exchanging information
With parents from
Another institution
Instilled wrong notion
About the Coaches intention

Bad mouthing coaches
Degrading their skill
Spreading this talk
Behind the back

Cause of defeat
Squarely on the Academy
Single out a coach
Make him a scapegoat

With purpose and ire
Spread like wild fire
Intention to smear
On the line
The coaches career

Acumen acquired
Coach not required
Now a winner
Coach made to
Look like a joker

Next level play
In another academy lay
Leave the very school
Lacking knowledge tools
A bunch of fools

Kids like this plenty
Forget their journey
Now a burden to carry
Never felt sorry

Ends up finally
Kids leave the Academy
Every aspect unhappy
Coach and facility
Washing in public
Dirty laundry

Coaching professionally
Done with integrity
True to duty
Need not worry

Walk on
Next aspirant
Seek your attention
Give him guidance
Shower him with affection
Stay true to the profession
Try to make him a champion
Without fear or favor
Benefits not consider
To create a player
The job akin
To the Supreme Maker
