Ode to Opening Day

by LS Murphy

Opening Day is finally here,

Fans across the country readily cheer.

In St. Louis, we party til they open the gates,

Knowing our team will never be late.

The stadium will fill to the brim

With fans and families craving a win.

Albert will get his usual cheer

From fans grateful we have him this year.

The outfield will be ready to hunt down the balls

With a Puma in right, Colby crashing the walls,

And Holliday running down every hit his way

The Cards make all the naysayers sway.

Freese will turn the hot corner cold

Making plays that are considerably bold.

A new partner at short for Skip

No one should give Theriot lip.

Yadi will be Yadi, guiding his band

Of superstar pitchers owning this land.

The boys will be ready to take out the Pads

On Opening Day, for the lasses and lads.

So put on your jerseys and Cards hats too

As we cheer on our boys over a pitcher of brew

Onward we march to a World Series ring

The Redbirds need to wear more bling.
