The Shelf-life of the NHL
By David Smith Inspired by CBC Radio December 4, 2012
The NHL, a shelf-life and how it comes to a close;
The strike, the greed, the bitterness;
As the whole world knows
The OHA is checking hard
The community thrives, and is not scarred
The games are flourishing and parents enter in
To see them skate and dream, and grow and everything.
O the pocket communities can benefit from the strike
We can afford the OHA, the joy is what we like.
Seeing the youth hunger for the love of the game
It’s better than a business that amplifies greed and shame.
And how an organization can strike right out of reach.
The striking Ottawa Journal, It folded in defeat.
So every business has a shelf-life and the answer is within;
A strike over greed and bitterness
A smaller audience will begin.
