Christmas Eve: A Lockout Poem

Since there isn’t much news to report, I wanted to have a little fun and write a poem for you guys. Enjoy.

A small glimmer of hope that continued to shrink

We want hockey back for the holidays you shmucks!

But still Fehr and Bettman just brush off their tux

 

Compromise and understanding is no where to be found

As the NHL’s reputation is slowly pinned to the ground

The owners are greedy, the players are proud

For this is the reason Staples is no longer loud

 

Champagne once flowed freely from Lord Stanley’s Cup

A thrilling ride which got LA pumped up

Critics claimed hockey in Hollywood would never stick

Until they learned about Jonathan Quick

 

So what do they need and what shall they take

Why can’t the owners and players cut us a break

Let’s voice our concern and give the executives a reason

To bring back our game this holiday season

 

Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday & GO KINGS GO
