Salutamus: All Hail the Victorious Baltimore Ravens!

The Ravens, of course, are named after the bird

in Poe’s famous poem, of which you have heard.

But these Ravens are bigger, and stronger, and badder

than anything Poe ever thought of, and madder

than hornets thrown out of their  snug little nest–

these Ravens are tough guys, and they are the best.

They ran and gained yardage, they blocked and they tackled,

the Broncos, the Pats and the Niners they spackled.

And Baltimore celebrates, once again  champs!

So tune up the guitars and blow out the amps.

For  memories of Gino, Big Daddy and John

and the ghosts of the old Colts in the Ravens live on!
