A very nice Chiefs poem from 1987

A Chiefs poem from 1987
We’re heading into the Super Bowl and we’re gonna publish everything that we like about our good, good team. That said: a member of the community sent in this poem they wrote in support of the Chiefs in 1987. It is… a really good poem? Just thought we’d share it with you.

America’s Gladiators (Super Bowl Sunday Version)

night embraces the American horizon,
and January has faded,
zebras now whistle beneath the roaring crowd,
wintry pigskin lay frozen at chalk mark,
surrounded by blooded jerseys,
behind the face mask eyepaint,
one universal unspoken thought rises from field
echoing the nation,
“It’s Super Bowl Sunday…
war time.”
