Dear Yankees: You’d better grasp
Your playoff circumstance.
With just a month to play,
It’s time for you to seize the day.
The games you should have won
Now haunt you. Are you done?
Wake up offense! Shake off slumber!
Hello team . . . it’s now September.
Yours truly, and all the rest . . .
But you’d better put out your best.
P.S.: Otherwise, it’s game over –
And a sad end for Derek Jeter.
