A Victorian Ode Upon the Buffalo Bills


Lynn Shaftic-Averill, of Kaisertown, has a scholarly interest in both British poetry and the Buffalo Bills. And never the twain shall meet, you ask? How little you know Buffalo.

Shaftic-Averill, caught up in Sunday's game against the New York Jets, posted a poem. She began: "With apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning, I am compelled to write..."

That is Elizabeth Barrett Browning pictured above. Ahem:

How do I love the Bills?

Let me check the score. 

I love the pass defense, the coaching calls, Byrd's interceptions 

The Jets' defense breach'd when field goals the wild winds do tame, 

And to the Jets, we put the screws and pains.
