Mario Lemieux

I had this school assignment to write a poem about someone and chose him... it has to rhyme every other line... tell me what you guys think...


The kid learned hockey in Montreal

Played junior hockey for the Voisins of Laval

In 84 he scored one hundred thirty-three goals

Leading to his being drafted first overall

The team and city desperate for a star took a chance

Hoping the French Canadian could make lord Stanley dance

The kid was tremendous, the team not so great

Winning a Stanley cup would have to wait

The season nineteen hundred and ninety one

The kid became Pittsburgh’s most heralded son

The team had won lord Stanley’s cup

How could they ever follow it up

The season to follow they won it again

A repeat for the kid and his men

1997 seemed to be the end for the not so young kid

The team was now broke, the kid then put in a bid

He brought the teams through financial trouble

And as the owner saw his team on the bubble

So he decided on a December day

They need a center who could really play

Looking back at his magnificent skill

He decided he still had the will

He wanted to play to help his team
The Penguins fans were full of gleam

The comeback was thought to be too good to be true

The city of Pittsburgh got to see its favorite son… Mario Lemieux.

I think it's good, but I though it had to rhyme every other line?? After "overall," it rhymes in succession.
