Murphy Made History

At Wrigley’s Field in Chicago
He bought two tickets, but struck out.
Barred from the game, with his pet,
“He stinks!”rang J. K.Wrigley’s shout.

At Sianis’ tavern across the way,
his pet, Murphy, was quite a hit.
But at the ball park, life turned sour;
they didn’t favor his goat one whit.

He aimed his pet to bring them luck
to watch World Series pennant wave.
Ejection brought anger, and a curse,
that loss would trail them to the grave.

The Cubs have yet to take the prize;
for seventy years, their losses count,
while Murphy’s name has garnered fame
and Wrigley’s shame they can’t surmount.

    Yes, it's the great curse in life that we are always surrounded by people who can't seem to share the feelings our treasures excite in us. Nothing draws me to a poem like the insights that burst from it. And here I have found it.

    Being a long time Red Sox's fan I know all too well what a curse can do! I honestly believe it won't be long till the Cubs will turn things around!

    Search from time to time for a poem with a purpose. Usually strike out, but your poem's got it. Bob
