Merrry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from everyone here at ScorpsNews. I was looking for a poem that my friend wrote about the Scorpions and Christmas. However, I was not able to find it when I was looking for it. Since I couldn’t find that one, I will post one of his other poems about the Scorpions, Hail to the Scorpions. It is from the ’90s when Ralph and James had just joined the band. Enjoy!

Hail, Hail To The Scorpions
Heavy Metal’s Long Reigning King
They’ve Kept Us Rockin’ For Over 25 Years
And We Loved Em’ From The Very First Sting

Klaus Is The Cause That Gives Us All Pause
With His Voice So Distinctive And Unique
With His Backwards Beret And His Two Step Sashay
The Little Big Man Still Reaches For His Peak

Rudy’s The Man That’s Been With The Band
From The Moment The Name Came To Be
His Mane Now Restrained, He Still Rocks Like A Hurricane
Always Impressive With His Famous Flying V

Matthias Is The One That Seems To Have All The Fun
The Women Can’t Seem To Resist His Smile
In Spandex So Tight, To All The Ladies Delight
Even Us Guys Just Like The Man’s Style

Rieckermann Is New, And Kottack Too
But They Both Seem To Balance The Band Well
As We Fans At Thezoo, Await Another Album Due
And Look Forward To The Tickets To Go On Sale

Yes Hail, Hail To The Scorpions
The Band That Has Given Us Their All
We Love Em’ Today, As Much As We Loved Em’ Yesterday
And Tomorrow We Will Love Em’ Even More

– Marcus A. Christian
