View Full Version : Bengals Poem (09.27.09)

A rumble in the jungle that ended like a nightmare
We played in Ohio and Ben finally lost there

Five seasons have passed but that doesn’t make it hurt less
By the end of the game they got themselves in a mess

They made big plays in the first half and were up by ten
Then on the opening drive Jonathan Joseph picked off Ben

This I would say was the game changing play
And it definitely wasn’t our defense’s best day

We really miss Troy - he can’t come back soon enough
He’ll make a big play when the going gets tough

Some things were good and others not so much
And Mike Wallace will usually catch anything he can touch

We had a little hope but our defense couldn’t get off the field
And when Palmer threw that touchdown our fate was basically sealed

One last ditch effort starting with an unsuccessful lateral toss
The clock went to zero and we had another loss

The game could have been different with one more catch by Sweed
Or at the least went to OT with another field goal by Reed

Bengals won two in a row - they’re on a roll
And beating us – they think they just won the Superbowl

As for the Steelers there’s lots more football left to play
And it will start at home with San Diego on Sunday

We have to come out on fire and finish what we start
Offense, defense and special teams must all do their part

I love poetry, especially when it involves the black n gold!

Last year the defense was quite a sight,
But this year they play as if they have no might,
We run the ball but to no avail,
Our offense has played quite very stale,
I wonder when they will get a win,
All I can wonder is when, oh when, oh when....

I'm drunk, cheers. :cope:

(the last couplet sucks, but hey, it's late, and this was composed in less than a min)
