They called him Chubby

They called him Chubby
Though he was sleek and fast
His verbal jousting
Never ran out of gas
He played all sports
And played them extremely well
You’d swear
As he kept on taunting you
That his head did actually swell
My brother and I
Would practice morning noon and night
to the break of dawn until the moonlit night
For that one day
When we could say we’d won
Never let him forget
Our glorious day in the sun
Sometimes in Life
You need someone
To give you the get-up and go
It can make all the difference
Between Also-ran and
All-Pro
