Tennessee wearing pumpkin orange
leads Florida 8 to 6
The score, perplexing the commentators and the fans alike,
seems cheerfully low
like playing an Andy Williams’ 45 at 33 1/3
Moon River still hopeful and gay

Was Tennessee Williams really from Tennessee
and did he play football?
That might explain the magic tower
built to hold his plays
none of which were read
in high school English in the ‘50s

And who’s to say why
Andy never visited his uncle Tennessee
Did he know about Branson even then?

Now Florida has tied the score
and everyone’s crying
especially Frank Stella
but only minimally
