The Ballad of Jack Cust

I.

Jack Cust

Has become a must!

Beating pitchers into dust.

Jack Cust

Has earned the trust

Of Oakland fans with home-run lust.

Jack Cust

Is free of rust

Despite demotions so unjust.

II.

Billy Beane sussed that Jack Cust

Wouldn’t go bust.

But even he must be nonplussed

By the heroic thrust

Of Jack Cust.
