All through Spring and Summer I've been waiting for the day
Football season started... I could watch New England play.
Yesterday it happened; 'twas their first game of the year.
By the end, the reasons I'd missed football weren't clear.
'though at first it seemed that we had dominating stats -
23 unanswered points...? The Dolphins beat my Pats.
Our Offensive line had gaping holes they couldn't shut;
Brady spent the second half of football on his butt.
Defense did no better for they couldn't stop the run.
Patriots looked awful 'neath that hot Miami sun.
(Hopefully, it's not a sign we've made the sports gods mad.)
Belichick's got work to do, 'cause yesterday was bad.
