by Hart Seely
When earthquakes terrorize Japan,
And home run sluggers head to jail,
When rioting confronts Iran,
And bankers grow too big to fail,
When Presidents must prove their birth,
From fools who claim they don’t belong,
While tides of hatred roil the Earth.
And all the world seems going wrong.
When cresting rivers flood our land,
And cemeteries fill with graves,
We’ll know it’s time to make our stand…
When Mariano blows two saves.
