Michael Fischer

The Heroic Veteran (A Homage To Chris Chelios)

He’s an aging man
in a young man’s game,
who plays to reclaim,
his foregone fame.

He doesn’t possess
the skills he once had.
His prime has passed,
but he still wants it bad.

He fights for each goal
and he knows no quit.
He’ll keep on fighting
till his final shift.
