by Stephen Jones
Like political parties after an election
each one going an opposite direction:
The Mets going south, in some recession;
The Nationals baseball’s frontrunner this season.
Even the one win seems small satisfaction
to the Mets, whose promise is now deflation.
The Mets, like the veteran politicians,
know “Nothing gets done in Washington.”
