We, the undersigned, put forth his name

Whereas Reggie Leach was born and played
his minor hockey back in our home town
The Rifle fired his first 500 here
then slapped his way into the NHL

We, the undersigned, put forth his name

Whereas some of us weren't always fair
to the Native kid on borrowed skates
Chippy Goolies and Ukrainians
in the corners with our elbows up

We, the undersigned, put forth his name

Whereas Reggie, on a playoff run
could make a dad go buy the new TV
and put his youngest by the window place
the split antenna in her tiny hands

We, the undersigned, put forth his name

Whereas photos from the old Tribune
of Reggie smiling with the Stanley Cup
curled their corners, dropped off bedroom walls
Left a square of where they used to be

We, the undersigned, put forth his name to the Hockey Hall of Fame
We, the undersigned, put forth his name to the Hockey Hall of Fame
Therefore we, the undersigned, put forth his name to the Hockey Hall of Fame
