After the Mets Victory

Sitting here on the fabled Lower East Side 
I watch the electric warriors on my TV screen 
7 innings of shut out ball for the Mets
But relievers came in and gave up a few runs
Victory is sweet 
But they rarely let a pitcher pitch 9 innings anymore 
Would have been nice to see Noah Syndegard 
throw a full game shutout 
The game has changed over the years 
Players make great sums of money now 
And Afro - Americans play alongside 
their white(and sometimes Jewish or Asian) brothers
Been a Mets fan for as long as I can remember 
As a kid I cried when they lost
In '69 and '86 they won all the marbles
Hope they make it to the World Series this year 
The light in my room illuminates the writing notebook 
I am using 
I can write down that my team won 
And hopefully will win tomorrow as well 
Let's go Mets!
