Inter-League Play (Going My Way?)

by Stephen Jones

The bells are ringing for inter-league play –
A diet staple, just like a holiday.

What was once a summer oddity
Is now regular baseball commodity,

Some match-ups enhance old rivalries –
Like Mets/Yankees, a subway series.

Others are fuel for the ongoing fire –
To DH or not?  That argument doesn’t tire.

To Judy and Der Bingle – my apologies.
Baseball is fathomless, with twisting eddies.

It continues, Zeus-like, with cosmic mystery
Ordaining: The AL keeps its singularity.
