The Saga of Steven Stein
Steven Stein tossed a pigskin under the lights, But he was a few yards from a lifetime worth of fame. The senior Steve lived vicariously. He nearly died the night Junior lost the game. The all-American kind, with blonde hair and blue eyes. A smile only matched by his cunning wit. He had good Samaritan ties, He wouldn’t harm an injured fly. Wearing shades every day, the future’s so well lit. The telephone’s for him, he’s drafted, but not by Redskins. It’s the same town, slightly different team. Steven didn’t expect to serve and protect, But traded shoulder pads in for Army greens. One more letter, to help father feel better, Saying “I’ll be home soon.” Just fifteen days of liquid fire and metal rain, And I’ll be back again. Signed Steven…I love you. Steven Stein lined up versus his demise, Fighting for the right to carry his name. The senior Steve lived vicariously. He nearly died the night Junior lost the game. He nearly died the night Junior lost the game.
