Ode to the Mets, losing again



When the daffodils  return to Queens

We will be back,

To listen once more for the “twack”

of home runs thrilling the night,

And our mighty heroes: Thor, and DeGrom, Cespedes and Wright

And Mr. Met will stoke the cheers as everyone buys beer

from vendors with buttons displaying calorie counts (thanks, Bloomberg)

Wait till next year,  Wait till next year- for isn’t it true,

oh Orange and Blue?

For although another loss makes us cranky,

We will never, ever,  be Yankees!
