*St. Joe’s*

Magis is a math tutor in LaFarge taking a break from Statistics,
to ask her pupil how his day went…then encouraging him and herself
to give more.

It is a junior on the basketball team who suffers a career-ending
injury, thereupon the changing of his life’s direction:
Continues to be cheered on.
‘Cause whenever classmates are down and out,
The Hawks Come Flying In.

St. Joe’s is where we root for the team,
As Hawks sail the Atlantic with routine.

Where even after leaving Hagan in defeat,
With the clock set on zeroes:
Each player will know we still care.

When stars like Jameer have fallen behind,
On & off the court we will still pull Nelson
To a better place that concerns the whole person,
In a strong hold to support the full Nelson.

The crestfallen receive full care,
Until they are ready to perch the sky,
And with this care crossing over to Heaven:

The Hawk Will Never Die.
