Purple Frustration

Viking Play

 

Purple Frustration

(Quatrains with refrain)

.

.

When season’s high expectations

Are summarily dashed,

And yesterday’s football standings

Are practically dashed.

.
‘Cause the Vikings are letting me down.

.
You think back to dreams of the start,

As the changes were made,

When the future looked off the chart,

Planning our victory parade,

.
But the Vikings are letting me down.

.
Now, zero wins with three losses,

Is not what most fans thought.

From the frequent errant tosses,

Runners easily caught,

.
Means the Vikings are letting me down.

.
It is not the end of the world,

Disappointment galore,

But that’s why the boos got hurled

When Ponder failed to score,

.
As the Vikings are letting me down.

.
Fans all hope to turn it around

To win a game or two.

So far it’s a sad sound

The purple are making me blue.

.
Yup, the Vikings are letting me down.

.

Author Notes

In a bad mood today!

After a 10 win, 6 loss season and getting into the playoffs last season. The team made a number of changes to improve the team. So, expectations were high at the start of this season. Superbowl expectations.

Christian Ponder is the Minnesota Vikings Quarterback.


Purple and Gold is the team’s colors. “Purple Pride” was the team’s motto. The 1970’s Defensive line was known as the Purple People Eaters. We often refer to the team as just The Purple.
