In English, we read a book written by Chris Crutcher, a compilation of short stories, called Athletic Shorts. Today we talked about one story, The Pin, it's about a son who challenges his father to a wrestling match after years of suffering domination and humiliation at home, then he wins and regrets it since his father is heartbroken. Now we have to choose a song or poem to describe one of the themes from it. Any suggestions?

Well, what are the themes from it?

Yes, but it's a FACT that most metal artists have more musicainship and technical skill than pretty much all rappers.

Pride, being a good parent, change, winning isn't always glorious. That's what we discussed in class, but this sentence really sums up the story, "a son challenges his father to a wrestling match after years of suffering domination and humiliation at home."

Better than me - Hinder

Might have a bit of a gay-incest vibe if you listen to any lyrics other than 'you can do much better than me'
ohai little sig.

Hm- I'm not sure right now but if I find anything I'll get back to you. Also if you don't find anything just pick a very vague song and link it to a theme.

I Cum Blood. It had to be said.

It would probably be much easier to find a poem that deals with this than a song.

I can only think of 'Follower' by Seamus Heaney, which doesn't really fit, but it might be worth a try.
