Poetic Commentary: The Raptors Way


Poetic Commentary
The Raptors Way
In the NBA World Basketball Championships we never lost our way …
Even as things did not always go our way …
Yes!  There was delay …
But now we see the pay …
A shiny trophy with our name inscribed …
Proving how hard we tried …
Your fans are overjoyed with pride
Yes!  Even as many had openly cried …
The Golden State Warriors thought they had sway …
And all the games would go their way …
The Raptors had other ideas ..
Especially when on the fans they rely …
‘Go Raptors’ was the cry …
As the victory lid they did pry  …
We can do this … as for a loss …
Through the wind this we did toss!
But you have not won before? …
That is not a permanent history for sure
In the 5th we lost by one
The Warriors regrettably had won …
It was a nail biter …
Alas! We proved to be a fighter …
This broke many a heart …
Tearing some coincidences apart …
Alas!  We were confident and smart…
As we are from the North …
We know harsh weather & climes …
We never allow defeat to be our blinds …
As disappointments can be so unkind …
Nothing equal you will  find …
Yes the win was close …
But the Raptors still deserve the toast!
We stuck it to the bitter end
As your grit you had to defend ..
The Raptors deserved to win …
And are worthy of a wide grin …
Ride on, Ride on you are up from the North…
Your efforts did not go to Naught  …
We look forward to the street parade …
Even the weather will be an aide
 We did it the Raptors way …
And this was the sway …
We came, we overcame & did conquer
We rightly now we deserve the honour
Amen!
