2013 NL Central Prediction Haiku

By Stuart Shea

CHICAGO
A brand-new playpen?
That’s just a distraction for
Your crumbling bones.

CINCINNATI
As we get older
We learn to use our wisdom.
What’s Dusty’s excuse?

MILWAUKEE
I’d walk a mile for
A Gamel–a healthy one.
Now: power outage.

PITTSBURGH
Brand new calendar,
Same old days. Same old people.
Same old misery.

ST. LOUIS
Another spring, a
Young man in charge–well, young by
Managing standards…
