RIVALRY

00:00 / 01:04

Not a feud
but a war,
from the Bronx to Kenmore,
from yelling mouths
to passionate core,
in this pinnacle of rivalry

Whether on the field
or the stands,
among the players
or fans,
there are infinite strands,
in this rigid noose of rivalry

Taking steps back
from statistics
and facts,
lay larger reasons
beyond the warning track,
in this eternal bitterness of rivalry

It’s the arrogant and aggressive
versus the critical
and obsessive,
two regions and its followers
so insanely possessive,
in this scorching drama of rivalry
