I cranked this out on my lunch break. I am not a poet nor do I aspire to be. I apologize in advance for any mispellings and lack of sructure.
Game one for the Broncos
It was an interesting day.
The media shook their heads,
this defense will never keep the Bengals at bay.
The Bengals fought hard
it was a close one indeed
But the Broncos would not give up
And with a tipped pass to Stokely, the Broncos had the lead.
Flag! Cried the Bengals,
looking for an infraction.
But the amazing play counted
And became known as the “immaculate deflection”
Up next were the Browns,
with Mangini and Quinn
But the Browns had trouble scoring
and the Bronco defense was credited with the win.
Then we traveled to Oakland
to play the silver and black
And again we made a statement
At 3-0, The Denver Broncos are back!
“Pish Posh” say the pundits
they’re playing an easy lot
Up next are the Cowboys
But Dawkins tells us reasuringly, “It matters not”.
After much anticipation,
America’s team finally came into town
But Champ Bailey stepped up
And shut poor Tony Romo down
Finally! Cry the fans we’re legit at last!
Not so fast says the MSM
Because up next are the Pats
In a chess match for the ages,
Master versus the protégée
Our defense had been unstoppable
But in the first half, the Patriots found a way
Adjustments were made,
coverages were tightened
And on every third down after
Tom Brady looked frightened
Orton and company began to find their rhythm
Could it be? The Patriots might lose.
Beaten by their own system
Marshall closed the gap with a juke and jive
And with an overtime field goal
The Broncos claimed win number five
The MSM is stunned,
grasping at anything to ascertain
is no longer able to refrain
As he fist pumps and shouts, the fans begin to cheer
The Broncos are 5-0
And we are a team to fear.
