A Chicago Cubs Fan Prayer Answered

                      A Chicago Cubs-Fan Prayer Answered! 

In nomine patri et fili spiritu of Ron Santo!
Let us all give thanks for Ernie Banks! 

Let us play........, two! 

Our Father, who art in Wrigley Field
Hallowed be thy ivy covered Brickhouse walls! 
Thy new stadium will come, the owners will be done
On Clark and Addison, as it is, to sit in the sun with thy bleacher-bums!

Give us this day our daily dread but remove those lights that so offend!
Forgive us our trespasses and Cubs left on bases, as we forgive those 
Teams who trespass these hallowed places!

Caray us on and win the pennant race, all’s we’re ask ‘in for Lord,
Is a couple a more runs! 

Most of us can't afford a dog or beer in here, but a least da cops is really 
Nice around here! 

Lead us not into temptation and deliver us to a World Series, while were still young!

So grab a beer and join the cheer, cause we ain't leav'in Wrigley 
Till "Yogi" say's it's over in here!

Tim, I don't know if you'll get this comment, as it's 3 years after the publication of your opus magnifico, BUT THIS IS THE GREATEST BASEBALL POEM I HAVE EVER READ BY A LOT. And that includes "Mighty Casey." You deserve a spot in Cooperstown for this one!! My hat's off to you! Bravo! :) Gershon Wolf
