Sudden Death

Poem Commentary

OK ... this is just a frivolous offering which only an action hero movie enthusiast could appreciate. And then ... only if he's seen the movie. It's about a father saving his daughter and a large auditorium filled with hockey nuts from a band of terrorists. It's kind of a Canadian thing eh?

Sudden Death

          SUDDEN DEATH

 

Hollow ‘s the point which the powder will hurl

It’s game ending cargo to the man in the mask

Follow  to anoint this un-Heavenly task

O reaper of sorrow and friend of a churl.

 

Scrummers collide as the boards slap the air

And the crowd issues volleys of praise

All comers beware of the dead it might raise

When the big hand gets over to there.

 

Seventeen thousand is the strength in the yell

All held hostage, but still unaware

The crosshairs align on the ominous sight

But it’s power‘s absorbed by the absence of light

As the good guys fulfill their own prayer.

Yes .. the lion’s defeated the bear.

Churl is an excellent word and well used in this poem. Long is the argument that a lion can defeat a bear as most say it would be the opposite which make the ending all that more meaningful. Olan.

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
