Never-ending Game

 

It’s the 16th inning

We’ve stretched twice

Bears arrive late

As though it’s

Just begun

 

Mrs O’Leary’s Cow

Sips “tea” delicately

In her beautiful

Rose chintz china

With a goat

Named Murphy

 

They give

Color commentary

Their finest brogue

A bit slurred

And funny too

 

(Sure an’

They’re on

Their 4th “teapot”

Ye know)

 

Sailor Jack

His dog Bingo

Sell candied

Popcorn and peanuts

To sleepy children

 

Fans still cheer

As if we’re

Just starting

While #14

Yells from

Right foul pole

“Let’s play two!”

 

On the field

43 k’s so far

And counting

Bats and records

Starting to break

 

Leo “The Lip”

Argues with Joe

Behind the plate

Kicks dirt then

Storms away

 

Players left stranded

Like wallflowers

The Babe claps

Organ music plays us

Into the 17th inning

 

As Jack Brickhouse

Pours more “tea”

Into rose chintz cups
