The Pale Hose in Winter

by James Finn Garner

The Asian bird flu,
From what I remember,
Was easier to get rid of
Than Sox tix in September.

The Pontiac Aztek
And White Castle sliders
Have more satisfied fans
Than Chicago’s South Siders.

With the Bears suited up and
Hockey season not far,
The Cell now won’t have fans
Enough to jump your car.

Long gone’s the excitement
Of AJ, Oz and Buerhle.
At 35th and Shields,
Winter’s come early.
