My prayer goes out to the Red Sox fan|
This:--"Banish all hope ye who enter here."
Please spread these sage words to your frenzied clan
You get worked up like this this time each year
Your fascination with the underdog
Your undying love for the losing team
Your "They lost again!" grief that fills each blog
Reminds us of the American Dream
We too were hopeless, without prayer
We too came bedraggled to Manhattan
We too strove to shed desperation there
We too prayed for victory on the island
In the same way your Red Sox team is cursed:
A band of second sons who must be first.
