You may have seen the story about the rival San Antonio high schools that finished a football game and immediately segued to a massive food fight at a local fast food restaurant. If nothing else, the schools were more creative and safe than other schools, who use guns.

To honor both O'Connor High (San Antonio, Tx.) and Brandeis High (San Antonio, Tx.) and their adherence to non-violent but very messy fan battles, Prep Rally decided to pay tribute in poetry. Very brief, Japanese-invested poetry.

When you throw them hard enough
Football? No, food fights
