As promised, a post if the Baltimore Ravens won SB47 and….

RFLKRNEW786Well this is earlier than expected, after all there was going to be a new post around the time of the ‘oilchange’ with Steve, but I did promise I would post this [and to a certain party, a cryptic message contained in same]

So with apologies to the following: Edgar Allan Poe, Robert W. Service, Frank Jacobs and others from the days when copywriting was an art form….and with no further adeiu.

Once upon a Sunday that was partially dreary
Whilst many in the US and the planet wandered weak and weary
and perused books, tomes and videos of forgotten lore

That recorded a season
Which was played hard and fast for many a reason,
And now comes down to a final game which is too exciting to ignore
And now comes down to a final game which is too exciting to ignore

While 32 teams had hopes which were high
Although reality for some proved those were nigh
They all played til their knees and arms were sore

But come the end of the year,
Those who had missed out were crying many a tear,
And those in the playoffs started playing for something more
And those in the playoffs started playing for something more

All this and even more

This has now come down to one day in the Big Easy
A city that has come back from items that turned it terse and in some ways sleazy
But has fought back time and time again and more..

To be the stage of the ultimate scrimage of a game,
That not everyone plays to win the same
And to be talked of as great when fate writes the final score…
And to be talked of as great when fate writes the final score…

The runup to the game was par for the course,
With every possible question being asked as a part of the discourse
To those who were preparing for this chess-like version of war

From those about those who will retire after duel
To the brothers who are coaching against each other in a rivalry renewal
But the peace which led up to this game is now something to ignore.

As the game commenced it became something like a vicious fight,
With barbs traded by each person with all their might..
Until the clock closed out the first half door

It became rather clear
That the Ravens were angry enough to hunt down a deer
And that the 49ers were playing as though their alarm clocks were on snore
And that the 49ers were playing as though their alarm clocks were on snore

Beyonce’s halftime show tore the roof off the place,
Which served to slow down the pace
And prevented temporarily the Ravens from rolling up the score

This lasted til the 2nd half kickoff
When the Ravens special teams showed off
How from 9 yards deep a kickoff can be returned with the flash of a raptor’s soar
How from 9 yards deep a kickoff can be returned with the flash of a raptor’s soar

A power outage arrived on the scene
plunging the Superdome into something dark and mean
Some thought this game could end sooner than before

The power did come back
Which in turn the time away gave the 49ers a rest to attack
And the play with an urgency that they did not have before

The game became close at 31-29 with the Niners clawing back
Causing those in the crowd and at home for their hearts to attack
Meaning that unlike in the past, this game would not be one late to ignore

But after trading some points and taking a safety in the endzone
The 49ers ran out of chances to even try to take a lead and win back home.
And the Ravens then won Super Bowl 47 and will be enshrined on Lombardi’s Trophy and in Canton as such evermore
And the Ravens then won Super Bowl 47 and will be enshrined on Lombardi’s Trophy and in Canton as such evermore

Ray Lewis will now end his career with a second ring which he will wear….FOREVERMORE

[A postscript….slightly cryptic *S*]

Perhaps from here this means that things for all of us will get better….
Every life lifted and prospects also getting excited
Inspired long over various experiences, Yes over undertones
Like those such as in the game story told above.

Again, a little bit cryptic 🙂

So from the land of the colourtini, enjoy the picture as the words fly through the air.
