Discovery Prompt – Team

A brilliant individual;

he didn’t fit the team.

He liked to hog the ball a lot,

would seldom ever pass.

So many a chance went begging,

though he wasn’t different class.

 The coach took him aside one day

and told him what he thought.

Tension in the dressing room!

Things got very fraught.

He might have been a genius

But didn’t help the rest of us.

He ended up a substitute

seldom off the bench.

They transferred him eventually

and, though it was a wrench;

the team was stronger over all

for their togetherness.
