Where in the paper do the Cubs belong?
Not in Sports! Oh mama, that would be wrong
With their hapless hitting and wretched bullpen
Any change by Sveum’s just spitting in the wind
Maybe in Business with their leveraged debt
At least Wrigley’s renovation’s now an even bet
Or perhaps in Travel, touting the new Cub hotel?
How about Entertainment with more night games to sell?
I know! Local News about the new Jumbotron signage
Then they can quote the irate neighbors whinage.
But even though the Cubs just broke out their mitts
It looks like this season belongs in the Obits.
