Yankee Fan Lament

by Stephen Jones

A.J. Burnett
The best we can get?
Number 2 in rotation?
Is consternation

In July he hasn’t won yet
& now he seems set
To continue in August
With confounding performance

(But he has good stuff
With used-car fluff
Chimes a hollow commentator
As if proving The Equator)

Who knows where his head’s at?
It changes with a swing of the bat
Each time he takes the mound
Each fan prays Don’t let me down

Because each time A.J. Burnett
& good stuff is an uncertain bet
