Wrigleyville Triplet

By Stuart Shea

Tom Ricketts is changing the game
And Wrigley will not be the same.
.      For what sits in his tank?
.      The keys to the bank!
Someday, the park may bear his name.

A Wrigleyville pol named Tom Tunney
Depends on the campaigning money
.      From the owners of land
.      Who he must understand–
So he tries to make night games turn sunny.

Chicago has only one boss,
And it’s not hard to make the man cross.
.      Through his bullies and shills,
.      He will get what he wills–
In each case, a win with no loss.
