Let's Play Two

Older than fire,
monsters midway
from Cap to Gabby,
they won more than any
had seen before
or since.
Who ever would tinker with their chance?

Reality set in,
then surreality.
Beaten by Boston
before berating Babe.
Was the called shot his true curse?

From black cat to Bartman,
since they were last champs
the Wandering Fan could have
walked from Addison
to the Moon
and back
three times
while still getting 8 hours of sleep a night.

Still they confine themselves
in an ivy-covered whale of a park
and root steeped in the old style.
The saddest of possible words
are never
"take me out to the ballgame."
Go Cubs, go.
