I normally don't post any of the poetry I write. Gotta be realistic. Most of the material is personalized so it normally wouldn't make much sense to the random blog passer-byer.
But tonight is different from all other nights. Just like Jew-Passover. It's the big game. Arrowhead baby. Releasing the poem would help substantiate my love for the black'n'gold.... or completely equivocate my steadfast devotion. Keep in mind, I'm quite positive the Steelers organization hates my guts.
Anyway, a little background on the poem. A buddy of mine took his daughter's high school gymnastic team to Liberty University for a regional meet. Jerry Fallwell is an evangelical leader who also serves as the President. Knowing full well that I have a significant degree of "anal animus" directed toward Reverend Fartwell, he snagged me these authentic red & white Liberty University. pom-poms. Shake, shake, shake your moneymaker.
Now... another one of our friends is reporting live tonight from the game in Kansas City. And as luck, or coincidence would have it, his wife is a graduate of said university. Well, I came to the realization that I would never have any utilitarian application for these pom-poms. But I did think they'd make a nice gift for their daughter, who incidentally, might possibly be the most gregariously pleasant, spirited child on the face of the planet.
FYI --- Her nickname utilizes the words "Co Co."
As the Steelers prepare for Kansas City
We shouldn't be arrogant or overly witty.
The game will be challenging and heavily contested
Since one of our coaches, was recently arrested
Arrowhead Stadium can be a brutal place to play
Our secondary is suspect, with or without Gay
Reliance on the 3 B's... Ben, Brown and Bell
Could be insufficient, from what I can tell
I'm not gonna lie, why even try?
Something will be required... from WPXI
We hear it's gonna be, team Phillips and Loesch
Preferably not shirtless, exposing their flesh
But lest ye not worry
J.T.'s a different story
Cuz we're gonna need all the help we can git
As Yinzer nation tries to prove they're legit
Now it's not our intention, to start sounding loco
But we could use a little help... from the indomitable Haddie Coco
In the form of these authentic Liberty University pom poms
Patriotically endorsed by one of our favorite moms
Albeit the sentiment might appear, a little confusing
Rest assured, it's ironically amusing
That as the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for a divisional round fight
Our favorite cheerleader will be sporting the red and white.

Obviously, you can see why I don't routinely post these poems. If you didn't know the characters, they'd make little sense. Leaving you in a slightly annoyed and agitated state.
