We criticize our politicians, our school boards, etc., but don't you dare criticize your coach or teammates. What kind of message does this send to our students? Do you agree or disagree with what happened to this boy?
I would have to read the poem to give an informed opinion.
That said, we have the freedom OF speech, not freedom FROM speech. There are consequences to our words most of the time. You will anger some people and that might net you a negative response.
If the poem was threatening in any way, I can understand the response he got. If not, then it seems that the school and coach got kind of butt hurt.
Oh, I would also want to know what the student handbook states about this kind of behavior and what punishment / consequence it states will be given for this kind of infraction.
