settling a bet
by Michele Christopher
As per this post, and the New York Jets crushing loss to the Pats today in a very exciting game, I hereby fulfill my end of the wager I had with Ernie, with a four stanza poem in which I declare my love for the New England Patriots.
Except I don't do exactly that. But I did the best I could under the circumstances. Duress and all that. Making me think of how much I hate Blesdoe. Making me get that bitter taste of Parcells in my mouth again. This was the best I could do and damn it, that's good enough.
Ode to the New England Patriots
I’m supposed to be nice in this poem
and not to mention also
plus the fact that its’s new england
so I’m trying hard to be nice here
