Wisconsin Royalty

by Jonathan Eig

There once was a Prince from Milwankee
Whose wife gave him no hanky panky
.     I’ll be ready, she said,
.     To take you to bed
When you swing your big bat as a Yankee

Jonathan Eig is the author of Luckiest Man: The Life and Death of Lou Gehrig, Opening Day: The Story of Jackie Robinson’s First Season,  and Get Capone, all now out in paperback.

  1. Hilary Barta wrote,

    Though it vexed him, the Prince understood
    No sex — not until he made good
    So he practiced his stance
    as he grabbed at his pants —
    Up next, a strained quip about wood.

  2. Stephen Jones wrote,

    Love both!

    But I “dinna” think Prince’s pants and “wood” will arrive in NYC.
