 (A Chiefs’ poem by 3rdnlong)  

“Setting the Tone – (pre KC vs. CLE Week 1)”

If you only saw the hype that was on the shows,
You’d think that the Browns were more than close,
Some pundits have already crowned them champs, no joke!
Because they have their guys, stout D-line, and more,
A former overall number 1 to score,
And OBJ, Myles, you can get why Cleveland is stoked.

But you need more than hype when you play Mahomes,
And Kelce, Tyreek Hill, when we start at home.
The Arrowhead fans will be pumped as you know we will be.
With Stone-Cold Jones force, Bolton too, Jarran Reed,
With Hitchens stepping up, Sorensen and Sneed,
The hype will die in glorious Chiefs’ victory.

Chorus: Set the tone, Chiefs!  Make them sweat.
They haven’t seen the likes of Kansas City yet.
The pundits make noise, they drone and drone,
But the Kansas City Chiefs are setting the tone.

When the Browns come to play, what a shock they will see
When they have to face Andy’s creativity
‘Cause his plays are like nothing that Cleveland’s trained to face.
Making the best, mighty defenses weak
Getting guys open by design and technique,
Orange dawgs will whimper, tails dragging back home in disgrace.

Our new powerhouse O-line will block steady
Disrupting Browns vaunted defense ‘a plenty
And giving Mahomes all day and much more to throw.
He’ll have eternity on each down to make plays
As he pinpoints receivers with shot laser rays
And running backs, too, will find many open holes to go.

Chorus: Set the tone, Chiefs!  Spank them hard!
You can’t surrender any yard!
The pundits make noise, they drone and drone,
But the Kansas City Chiefs are setting the tone.

Now the Chiefs have a dream.  It’s a dream worth dreamin’
And it’s all about KC in the postseason
Going far, going back to the Super Bowl for the third time.
And having won it all, 2 times out of 3
We want to lift high that rare Lombardi
Once again, And show that we’ve reached the summit we’ve climbed.

Yet in order to succeed, we have got to play
And it starts against Cleveland on opening day
We have got to come out on fire as we start the season.
But Patrick, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill
And Thuney, Chris and Clyde and the rest all will
Play lights out, ‘cause they share that dream and all know the reason.

Chorus: Set the tone, Chiefs!  For the win!
Arrowhead men will be champs again!
The pundits make noise, they drone and drone,
But the Kansas City Chiefs are setting the tone.

If you want me to make a song parody of a specific song, just request below in the comments section.  And as always, Go Chiefs!

Thanks for the love, guys! If you’re just getting introduced to me, I started writing Chiefs’ poems this summer – mostly in the fanpages section. My plan is to try and do 2 poems a week (where possible – like, next week it won’t be possible for me). The first poem will be about the upcoming team we play and the news of the week. The second poem will be post-game (maybe the next morning) and a summary of the game in poetic form.

And as always – GO CHIEFS!

It’s fine with me. I don’t know the technicalities of it. But if you want to keep doing it this way and just introduce me each time, that works.

Hmm. Maybe the Tyreek Hill one set to the tune of Queen, “We Will Rock You”.
