Poem: Roller Jamming For God
There was a time when roller derby was big;
The Warriors, T-Birds, Devils, Bombers, and others too.
The skaters were stars, and possibly the greatest star of all
Was pretty Judy Arnold, till she saw things anew.
She used to focus on scoring points
By skating pass opponents in her way.
And by blocking other skaters from passing her,
She helped her team to win each day.
But something changed in her competing heart
As she looked at her life and saw
That she was being called for a purpose so great;
A new path that would lead to something much more.
She left the banked track to attend Bible school.
She became a Warrior for God's team.
Jamming now to win souls for salvation and joy,
Judy's fulfilling her glorious dream.
