Astros and Debits

by James Finn Garner

If Houston’s the most valuable franchise,
As Forbes Magazine did just say,
Then our economic assumptions
Are a foundation made of clay.

To be valuable, apparently, is to
Never spend your cash, just hoard it,
Yet I keep hearing the voice of Chico Marx:
“For us not to play, you couldn’t afford it.”

  1. Michael X. Ferraro wrote,

    you can’t fool me. there ain’t no sanity clause.

  2. James Finn Garner wrote,

    And is my word good enough for you?

    I should say not!

    Then that cuts out two more clauses.
