The Jaguars announcement of renovations to EverBank Field this week was met with great excitement. Shad Khan drops millions more on the stadium, is working in concert with city leadership, and putting to rest ideas that he is not committed to the city of Jacksonville.

It's like .....poetry.

How can you not think of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Kubla Khan, where the great emperor of the Yuan Dynasty builds Xanadu, his pleasure garden?

Well, I re-purposed the first part of the poem and just left out the second half about the woman wailing for her demon-lover, the damsel with the dulcimer, and feeding on honey-dew...

Shahid Khan

by Downer JagFan -

In EverBank did Shahid Khan
A stately pleasure-zone decree:
Where St. Johns, the sacred river, ran
Through sedges measureless to man
Down to a sun-filled sea.

One hundred yards of fertile ground
With lines and posts were girdled round:
And there were sections alive with fabulous yells,
Where boasted many a fan bearing a shield;
And there a mascot sturdy as the hills,
Running through sunny spots of field.

But oh! those deep romantic pools adorned
Above the north hill athwart a concrete cover!
A wondrous place! as lovely and enchanted
As e'er beneath the giant video boards
With food and drink in the cabanas found under!
