The Quarterback

Lanky, innocent, naïve, well-intentioned, really likable

Jock with a voice and a heart and some neat dance moves

For a really tall kid.  No demons beyond the normal high school

Schizophrenia of being a macho quarterback and a crooner

Of musicals with kids who couldn’t toss a rubber football

From right to exit stage left.   A man In his thirties dropped

Dead for real in a Vancouver hotel room, but we couldn’t

Believe that the boyfriend of the cute, really short, super-

Talented brunette with the really big voice died.  We didn’t

Know the guy in the hotel room in Canada, but our hearts

Broke for the quarterback who was never really real.
