Orr, to think that one day you may

no longer be known as highest scoring

defenceman in history is strange to me.


Orr, imagine the day when you are gone,

reduced only to “Bruins great (3)”, or

“Rink legend Bobby (3)”, lost amidst

the wreckage of time until you are pulled

into a black and white linguistic cage.


Orr, I suppose it could be worse, myself

lacking even that much fame, and far too

encumbered by irksome consonants.
