Never say never,
my grandmother said.
And never say die,
I learned as a kid.
And never give up,
I shed a tear with Coach V.
And never make money
all that you can be.

Except, never say never is squared
and those brave men said never
as a prelude to every last man's death,
and tears raised funds and inspired research
too late for Coach V and millions of others
following his salt trail to a sea of loss and
very little immortality.
