Typewriter Rodeo: Warriors of the Court

Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on Texas topics.

Typewriter Rodeo’s David Fruchter was inspired by the intrepid young women of high school volleyball for this week’s poem.


Warriors of the Court

sacrificing their summer

on the altar of training,

like any athlete

honing their minds and bodies

to the peak of alertness,

speed, strength

and devastating power

the young women of high school volleyball

are coming

to destroy you

hurling themselves around the court

diving for the save

becoming one mind with their team

and spiking that deadly sphere

right in your FACE

so watch out

volleyball women are coming

and they will NOT be blocked
