The Red Sox Sonnet

The outfield Yaztremski Lynn and Evans
Is the greatest Red Sox outfield all time
Red Sox never had Seavers nor Ryans
Clemens and Tiant did shine in prime time

Francona is the man that made them shine
Winning two world series with him in charge 
They had plenty of reasons to drink wine
Their pitchers are winners and their bats large

Nineteen-Eighty-Six was Buckner’s nightmare
Today Varitek is behind the plate
Helping Papelbon with his scary stare
The mighty Red Sox has somehow changed fate

Boston Red Sox are champions always
They’ll even make a few more double plays



This is a sonnet I wrote a few years ago.
