“The State Farm Bowl That Wasn’t”

 (A Chiefs’ poem by 3rdnlong) – 2021 NFL Week 9, KC vs. GB

“The State Farm Bowl That Wasn’t”

The schedulers at the beginning
Saw the hype this game would bring
Mahomes vs. A Rodgers?
There’s one word that fits!  Cha-Ching!
But oh, that poor Mr. Rodgers
Is sick with Covid 19.
He has to sit and recover
And can’t face the KC Chiefs team.

The hype train has now been derailed,
In part by a virus from the East.
That A-Rod can’t play is a big part,
But so are the Chiefs, at least.
You can’t win games by turnovers,
And giving the ball away.
You can’t win with a defense
That only makes one or two plays.

The State Farm Bowl that Wasn’t
Now Mahomes vs. Jordan Love
Still a rematch of SB 1
Still we need to score above

The Chiefs now have to ball out
Against the powerful Green Bay run
Our moveable-object defense,
When the game is all said and done,
We hope does not make highlights
For the Pack, the yellow and green.
Instead we hope we can hang on.
We hope we will play tough and mean.

Mahomes can re-find that magic,
The touch he has had for so long,
And drive long drives and score touchdowns
And make defenses look like ding-dongs.
Our wonder QB can recover
And throw crazy throws yet again
And find the wide open receiver
And then in a pinch, run for 10.

The State Farm Bowl that Wasn’t,
And as Rodgers won the last
Now it’s Mahomes time to shine
For a Chiefs’ win, the time is way past.

Please let that funk that we’ve been in
Have seen it’s last dying days.
For once, we’ hope the ball bounces
In this crazy season, our way.
Why not against the Packers?
What do we have to lose?
In ‘11, they were undefeated
And Romeo’s guys over them cruised.

This non-State Farm game could then just
Revive that same mindset again
And creaming the Green Bay Packers
Could make our team, not mice, but men.
We still have a shot to do it.
Our offense, though hindered, can score.
This game could come down to the wire.
It will go down to who wants it more.
