Hockey War

Today’s hockey game score was as follows:
One concussion, two black eyes three broken toes,
This was the score for the home team Toronto,
Winnipeg had a black eye a broken arm one toe,
This is the nature of the game a modern Coliseum,
Bread and circus, modern version up with the thumb,
Not really much of a difference over two millennia,
As if we were still in the early roman era,
Apparently hockey without violence impossible,
A game without fighting inconceivable,
The public demands its pound of flesh,
They have paid for their ticket in cold cash,
