When a role model
Like an NBA player
Puts someone in a headlock
Or seemingly stomps on a fallen player,
What message is he sending to our kids?
And the coach
Who should be critical
Coming out in support of the player,
What message is he sending to these kids?
There’s enough violence in the world
Without sports adding to the mayhem
Let’s keep it all fun and games
Little kids are watching
Let’s send them the right message,
Playing hard doesn’t have to mean
Playing dirty, keep it clean
And be the role models you were meant to be.
