“The Opener and the Closer”: Cubs-Nationals, Opening Day 2012

By Hilary Barta

As the management turns a new leaf
The old fans are relearning their grief
As the ace, Dempster’s strong,
But then brace for what’s wrong,
And make plans to get burned in relief.

    I don’t know why I pretend to have some critical distance. Maybe self preservation?

    As the management turns a new leaf
    We old fans are relearning our grief
    As the ace, Dempster’s strong,
    But we brace for what’s wrong…
    And make plans to get burned in relief.
