In Canada we do not cower
On ice we have a lot of power
When we're young we know our fates
No booties for us we wear ice skates

We dream of scoring goals galore
We pass the puck we shoot it more
We do not like our politics
In bed we hug our hockey sticks

Our country built around a game
Become a pro and get some fame
My seond home the ice arena
I skate and play so very keena

It's Hockey so Canadian
Some players are Arcadian
The game now ends lets shout it out
Winners cheer and losers pout

Hockey is a national institution in Canada.

    Hockey as a title caught my eye. Although I'm not Canadian, I grew up in Minnesota, the so-called "State of Hockey" here in the U.S. and follow hockey closely. This was fun to read.

    ... I just laugh at that image of hugging a hockey stick. Surprised you didn't throw maple syrup in this poem (isn't that another Canadian cliche?)... lol! I'm not much of a sport person, but hockey is definitely more entertaining than American football.
