    A Draft Weekend Tribute Poem (or, why AvengerRam shouldn't quit his day job)

    It was quite the tiring weekend
    And now that I am on the mend
    The '06 draft I will send
    off with a poem, my friends

    Speed is key for a D-back
    So Hill should get no flack
    If you want somebody taller
    Stretch him out on a rack

    Going over the top
    and giving the Red Zone pop
    we'll be really tough to stop
    now that we've added Klop

    Certain conduct is verboten
    without it, scouts are doting
    but all it seems were voting
    for a Round three choice of Wroten

    Who hits like a ton?
    And really can run?
    Blitz packages are fun
    with a guy like Alston

    It really isn't that absurd
    to use two tight ends, or so I've heard
    so with one more pick in the third
    The Rams added Dominique Byrd

    The Rams got rid of Manu
    And this trade the Chargers will rue
    The Rams get another steal too
    By drafting Victor Adeyanju

    Next we took a sleeper
    Who we hope open peepers
    Special teams just got deeper
    If Marques Hagans is a keeper

    Round seven brought bargains
    Palmer, Setterson and T.M.,
    If we get value from any of them
    The draft may very well rate a 10

    So stop me before I rhyme some more
    Another stanza and I will bore
    With draftees you never know what's in store
    We can only hope glory, they will restore
    In the end, who can ask for any more?

    So you got that I was using the draft as a metaphor for the ever-increasing of futility of man's effort to find the bliss of solitude in a World of hyper-technology?

    I like to think of my style as ironic pentameter.

    Ok. Let me say that I got the poem. I don't get this:

    Too many big words. I'll just leave it at I got what the poem was about!

    During the draft I look for Avenger
    He showed up here and there
    But in the end he's a malingerer
    His presence was bare

    I challenged him to show
    On day two but he was not here
    I had some more money to blow
    My donation he did not want was clear

    So the Holt Foundation is lacking
    because Avenger had something to do
    Giving rise to this poem of smacking
    To the AvengerRam, that's you.

    Re: A Draft Weekend Tribute Poem (or, why AvengerRam shouldn't quit his day job)

    My kids were bored in the house
    And busy, was my spouse
    So on an outing, off we went
    Besides, most of our choices were spent

    So critique if you must
    Among you this may be discussed
    With addiction to this site, I may be cursed
    But make no mistake, my kids come first
    So come back at me - do your worst!

    :tongue:

    Avenger has put on his mitts
    In reply to my poem that's true
    His kids were giving him fits
    He's a father first through and through

    I admire his dedication to his family
    And scared of his wife like me
    To lessen the house of calamity
    It was his only choice you see

    So in light of my error in judgement
    There is only one course of action to take
    I'm not too big to admit I was wrong
    And another donation I shall make

    Fear of one's spouse only goes so far
    What I'm really scared of is your avatar!

    There once was a man from Nantuc.......oh, wrong poem.



    AV, you get an A+ just for the "verboten to Wroten" leap. You're lucky you did pull a muscle on that one.
    "Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
