Fair Fenway

Fair Fenway

In Boston town, where history trod,
Last night the fickle baseball god
Looked down on fair Fenway.
Game 6, the Sox and Cards came to play
Redbirds hoping to stay one more day.
The park was filled with the hometown crowd
Whose joy was felt, good and loud,
Overflowing in fair Fenway.
A final strike,the Red Sox won, first time in 100 years,
The entire state erupted into World Series victory cheers-
Elation in fair Fenway.
So the St Louis Cards take their blooper reel
Home to Missouri where sad fans feel
There’s more to prove in fair Fenway.

So dear Boston, stand tall and true,
As Cardinal red stands tall with you.
Because on an April day at the seasons start,
You showed us courage and gave us heart
And we all became
Boston Strong
Outside of fair Fenway.

*** Paying off a bet I made with @TheWanderinPoet-congratulations to the Red Sox – and there is always next year, St Louis. Go Cardinals 2014!
