by Jeffrey Felshman
For M. Donald Grant and Omar Minaya
So now, with Willie out of the way,
the Mets will really start to play.
If Willie hadn’t been standing in the way,
the Mets would be in first place today.
Since they’ve pushed Willie out of the way,
Mets management’s turned night into day.
Finally, with Willie out of the way,
the Mets are going all the way,
and Mets homers will fill Flushing Bay.
and a championship team will reign in Shea.
Now Beltran, Delgado, and Jose Ray
and Mets players too numerous to name,
will take their places in the Hall of Fame.
Because Willie Randolph is out of their way.
