I’ll write about hockey
I’ll write about hockey, I thought, yes indeed.
If I were a reader then that’s what I’d read.
Because hockey is fast and a game played on ice.
If I had some skates on I’d think it quite nice.
And it’s not just the skates, no there’s more.. you’re in luck!
You chase at high speed this small thing called a puck.
And you try not to fall but score goals, that’s the trick
As you whack at the puck at high speed with a stick.
And the ice it stays frozen and shines with a sheen
Cos it’s cleaned all the time with a special machine.
That hardly looks real and in fact looks quite phony
And has a weird name, yes it’s called a Zamboni
Don’t let me distract with this talk of Zamboni
They are finnicky things sometimes moany and groany
But they get the job done and they make the ice whole
So that you can get on with your job – score a goal!
