Words of Wisdom from a True Canadian Hero

A Poem by the Man who always said " Keep your stick on the ice " and "If the women don't find you handsome,they should at least find you handy ."

Hockey
By Red Green
It is Winter.
When l was young
we never had fights
in hockey.
But we also never
had helmets.
Or protective pads.
Or shields on our
skate blades
Or smooth ice.
We used broken
splintered sticks
And a brick for a
puck.
And big hard rocks
for the posts.
But we never had
fights.
We didn't need
fights.

From The Red Green Book,Wit and Wisdom of Possum Lodge,plus 100 pages of filler
