Uproar Over Proposed Renaming L.A. Memorial Coliseum to United Airlines

The Friendly Skies took an unwelcome turn for the worse
As its naming rights agreement with USC felt the public’s curse
LA Memorial Coliseum named to honor American Veterans of World War One
Whose surge of troops to exhausted allies enabled the war to be won
Was supposed to for $69 million become United Airlines Memorial Coliseum
Has created a among politicians and veterans’ groups somewhat of a rheum
United Airlines does not conjure up images of blood and sacrifice
Only no leg room, overbooking, dead pets in cargo and suffering of passengers that is anything but nice
Let the veterans of World War One not have to roll over in their graves
Least we can do for those who died to end all wars and democracies in Europe save
