pallasathene8 mentioned that the high school she teaches at recently played a team called the Goldbugs. Since I only know about goldbugs from reading Poe, I immediately started imagining the Goldbugs playing the Ravens in a big footbal game. So I started writing a Poe parody (tribute?) poem about that game.

It starts like this:

I was a cheerleader and she was a cheerleader
in our high school by the stream,
but we loved with a love that was more than the love
that either of us felt for our team...

I'll probably add more later after I do a little work.

Listening to: Tom Petty & Heartbreakers - "Don't Come Around Here No More"

Lesbian cheerleaders? That's hawt. My junior boys would love your poem.

I didn't even know there was such a Poe story. I'm going to have to hunt it down and read it now. :P
