A Trip To The Candy Store At Stake
Gretel and Hansel were given
But they did not know why
Since they did not lie
They decided to be Titans
At the time of this writing
Venturing into the forest
Just like the television commercial cat Morris
Wanting to compete with Chiefs who had the sweets
In the start blessed their heart
They had ten sweets and were feeling fine
Then the Chiefs said it was time
And at the rest break
The Titans had all they could take
By the end of the half
The Titans heard the Chiefs wrath
What did they say about the seven?” Gretel asked Hansel
Not wanting their big game party to be cancelled
“We may need those points so we can keep the candy,”
Was the answer about the advantage that could be handy.
But the chiefs were mad
Turning the Titans bad
In fact, the Titans needed more than seven
They needed eleven
Titans mounted a come back from the Chiefs attack
And on the final drive the Titans decided to say goodbye
As the chiefs watched them leave
G&H wondered what they will be
Mining for gold or Wisconsin cheese with a cup of tea.
The two went home
And had each other so they were not alone.
Then the seven was once again giving
And they said we must make a living
Without any debate
They could not wait
To feel secure, they choose the gold
Since they needed it when they are old
Packing the cheese was nothing until the third quarter
Giving crimson and gold the orders to go to Florida
“Off we go to another show,” Gretel said
Knowing the Packer spread was even dead
It will be the 49ers and the Chiefs in the big game this year
Giving us all something to cheer.
Two weeks from now
If G&H does not have too much candy that will make them a cow
Hopefully, in the end, everyone will take a bow
When the question be asked and answered before someone singing in a mask
Is it the Chiefs in control of the gold? Should they be so bold?
Or are we going be fools with our money over our leaders being funny
Time to open the candy store and let G&H in
Not caring really who is going to win.
Have fun on the beach during these couple weeks
Understanding this big game is when America smiles cheek to cheek
And when the book to this season is closed,
Where should we put our reading nose?
We find March Madness on the shelf to open
And this gives a whole lot of athletic stoking
When you are home by the fireside
Relaxing after the workday when you did try
Our sports are peaceful games with creative names
That brings people together so we can all communicate better.
