A poem for Winnipeg Jets fans

I wrote something for the Winnipeg Jets fans because I bet they are kind of sad right now.

The Atlanta Thrashers franchise record in the playoffs moved to 0-8 as the Winnipeg Jets 2.0 were swept out of the playoffs at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks. The strangest things about the sweep were that somehow Ondrej Pavelec, the goalie that had really showed those dumb number jerks a thing or two, was atrocious and that the league's loudest and best fans suddenly weren't able to give their team a magical boost anymore. The brightest spot in the sweep had to be the litany of fantastic tweets that it produced:

Some people even decided to remind Jets fans how their team's record in the playoffs fares when compared to the Leafs:

Now, I think it's really mean of those people to take this moment to dance on the grave of the Winnipeg Jets' playoff dreams so I wrote a poem to cheer you guys up:

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

The Leafs didn't win a playoff game

But neither did you

It may need a little work.
