My Poem on the National Championship: Auburn Born, Florida State Graduate

Auburn by birth,
Florida State by choice,
Yelling Go Noles and War Eagle
Since I have had a voice,

Rooting for both for many years,
The happy, sad, cheers, and tears.

I watched Ronnie run strong,
Carnell running free,
I cheered as Dyer ran hard
Without touching a knee

In 2004 and 2010,
I watched no losses and many a win

I also cheered Weike, Rix,
and the Weatherford and Lee
Followed it up with Ponder
who was followed by EJ3

I was there for 06, 07, and 09
When it seemed like winning 7 was just fine

But when I took a step in life
and began to pursue a degree
I knew there was only one school
That was right for me

Auburn too expensive, too far
Florida State possible just minutes in a car

In 2013, I walked the stage
I had completed my collegiate career
But as this season drew close
I cheered for both schools all year

The cheering to shock when the game was announced
A lot of people asked me which school I’d denounce

I gave it no thought
No time, No pressure
Because of these two teams,
One I do treasure

At the end of the day one thing is true
I have a ring and degree from one of these two

So when January 6th has come and gone
I know which team I hope tops the polls
For the Tigers are fun and love them I may
For the next few months, it’s all "Go Noles"
