(A poem by 3rdnlong)
The league is in the doldrums in the spring,
The “winter” of our season is occurring,
Fans scour the net for morsels of their team,
Like what undrafted rookie is a sure thing.
The Kingdom of the Chiefs is little different.
We hunger sore for training information.
We hope to hear some Chiefs’-related content.
The slightest clip fills us with some elation.
And yet, Big Red is cooking up some wrinkles,
New plays to use on offense and on defense
With unexpected twists, lib’rally sprinkled,
So rival teams will fall behind, in sequence.
And our QB and team will start to work soon,
The drills that will pay off when football matters.
The OTAs, each morning, night and mid-noon,
Will lift the Chiefs up power rankings’ ladder.
We yearn to see Tyreek and Travis Kelce,
And how our new offensive line protects.
We wonder which receiver, who like jelly,
Will stick the z-position; who projects.
We fantasize about our new, green rookies
And how they’ll show their skills and make the team
So greater, stronger, even that the bookies
Will bet on us and cash in on the green.
But all those days are too long in the future.
And right now we all languish in the spring.
September can’t approach us any slower.
We’re tired of hearing gen’rally nothing.
So hold on, fellow fans throughout the Kingdom.
The long offseason will be done someday.
And then, it’s Showtime, and his guys with bling on,
Who wear Chiefs’ red and come on out to play.
And when that happens, we will be ecstatic!
The doldrums of this long offseason gone.
To see our offense play, like automatic!
To watch our defense stifle everyone!
We have our eyes on bringing back a trophy,
A silver-colored championship display.
We’ll take it back, that stolen, lost Lombardi
And let’s just say, the Bucs will have to pay.
For when these doldrums are already over,
And it’s time to dominate once more,
The Bucs will feel like they are too hungover,
And Kansas City leaps ahead in scores!
Until that time, we wait in dull frustration.
September cannot get here soon enough.
When KC plays for real, it’s no vacation.
We’re going to “Take it Back,” ’cause we’re that tough.
