The Hockey Bag’s Lament

Oh please don’t open that hockey bag

The smell will make me faint.

It makes me start to cough and gag,

And that’s my main complaint.

You leave it closed all week long,

You never air it out.

I have to tell you that is wrong

It stinks like sauerkraut.

You need to take out all your gear

You need to wash your stuff.

If you don’t, please don’t come near,

I can’t get far enough.

Your hockey bag is yucky,

Your hockey bag is gross.

I always feel unlucky

If you sit too close.

So get your stuff all nice and clean

That is my greatest hope.

Put it in the washing machine

And please use lots of soap.
