A Motivational Poem for the Hockey Girls;
by Ella Irwin

We are the Mount Temple girls,
Challenge us to a game if you dare!
We aren’t like other hockey teams,
With pretty bows in our hair.
When you see us coming all you’ll do is stare.
We are not to be taken lightly,
If you’re shaking in your shoes, you should be rightly.

When it comes to the game,
This is no meet and greet.
We’ll push you, we’ll shove you,
And we’ll stand on your girly feet.

We’ll be ready for you,
Sweat drippong from our face.
Mouth open, gumshield showing,
We’ll run like it’s a race.

Run home and tell your mothers,
You’ll never guess what they chant.
Tell them we are no fairytale,
Nor a myth, nor a con.
We are the Mount Temple girls,
So BRING IT ON!
