The Art of Curling


It’s not correct to say that curling is a non-event;

that compared to bowling it lacks minimal content.

Also it is unfair to imply that such a sport

is only an excuse to belly up and have a snort.

It takes a certain skill set to slide granite over ice.

It’s not like playing Bingo or the toss of brittle dice.

A bonspiel is a meeting of the minds, as well as brawn.

(At least there are no cheerleaders decked out in pink chiffon!)

In Minnesota, where the frost of winter seems eternal,

curling is a warming way to share a chill fraternal.

So do not call it ‘fremmed’ in a tone that’s undiscerning;

it sure as heck makes better sport than going out and gurning!
