Poem: There's Only One October Wish

There's Only One October Wish

So now it is here, the Series we dreaded
Our season long gone, our hopes and dreams shredded
And we have a Choice more Susan Smith than Sophie
Just who is our preference for this Fall Classic trophy?
Some say "Let's Go Yankees!"; the words make me choke
I'd sooner root on those who made Wall Street broke
Still others see Philly as where we'd best fit in
Which makes sense, but only if you'd punch a kitten
So what's left to hope for? An injury or two,
Or an H1N1 outbreak from Bull's BBQ
But I hope for neither, I want both teams back again
So the healed Mets can beat them in 2010
My Fall dream is simple,  my fantasy ode
Starts and ends with the winning team clinching on the road
So home fans, be they Yankee or Phillie
Shed their tears as they head into weather so chilly
Let me see fans torn apart from falling short of their goal,
Phillies fans oh-so portly, Yankees fans sans a soul
Others may wish for some A-Rod clutch-hitting horror
Or comeuppance for Victorino, that baserunning schnorrer
My October wish isn't nearly so wild
Just give me a close-up of one crying child
