Wait Till Next Year

by Doug Fahrendorff

One Strike
From a World Series win
The Rangers
Fail to close out
The Cards
Was Bart Giamatti right
When he wrote
That baseball was designed
To break your heart
Or will Ranger fans find
Like the Dodgers in “55”
Or the Red Sox in “04”
Redemption is often
Only an October away
