With nothing to tell the difference of this tradition rigorous.
by Austin Draper
Always have these things been done
Though I had some doubts
Whether or not they be so vigorous.
Though through all the shouts
Nobody hears any screams.
Scores were not kept won,
But the comments and laughs weren't lost.
Though the gift bag may seem stout,
The family is a gift much larger.
Challenges are rigorous
But apathy festers bitterness
When all others seem as acerbities.
