A Sunday Poem: “Honour”


The Canadian Museum of History

celebrates 125 years of the

Stanley Cup.


An evening of tribute offers


bar drinks,

your picture with the Cup, and

an opportunity to rub shoulders with

former NHL players.


Even free parking and coat check.


All for $150 a ticket.


Lord Stanley

would have been pleased to know

how far his contribution

to amateur hockey

has gone.


(Editor’s note: poet Shai Ben-Shalom, an Israeli-born biologist, examines current events in the Blacklock’s tradition each and every Sunday)
