Leslie Byrne writes great poem

From The Washington Post, January 19, 1988
Del. Leslie L. Byrne (D-Fairfax) last week asked the people in Legislative Services, who do such things, to draft a resolution commending the Redskins for their triumph.

By yesterday, however, no resolution was ready for her to present on the floor of the House of Delegates.

Undeterred, Byrne drafted the following doggerel:

Minnesota fans may holler and bellow
Today's Viking is an unhappy fellow
For yesterday at forty-two past three
The Redskins won the NFC.
We Virginians love our team
Winning the Super Bowl, our big dream
So we offer congrats to burgundy and gold
A commending resolution my desk does hold.
For all delegates who would like to sign
Sing "Hail to the Redskins" at Seat 49.
