by Sid Yiddish
If you please, I’d like some goat cheese, to dispel the myth, from spring to fall
I’d like nothing better than to watch the Cubs capture it all, but one can’t be too sure,
For the milk has to be pure and not tainted with so much
And bad culture is 100 years of rotten ills,
Makes the old men drink hard liquor and swallow pills to forget about all that bitterness in between.
Like 2008 is going to set anyone straight!
It’s just another great debate and besides, it’s now mid-summer and the slide has slowly begun,
Which, when all is said and done, will lead them nowhere but to empty banter on Opening Day, 2009.
