RHYMES AND REASONS
Cubs Win!
It just might be the year

It's the year that Ernie left us
and it just might be the year 
that the Cubs of Wrigley Field go all the way. 
What Ron Santo died believing 
would in time be realized 
may be just around the corner come what may. 
 
Way back when Japan surrendered 
at the end of World War 2 
was the last time that the Cubbies danced the dance. 
But they failed to win the Series 
and a dry spell then ensued 
that for seventy long years would steal their chance. 
 
But they have a chance this season. 
Series fever's in the air. 
Banks and Santo have connections in the sky. 
If the fans just keep believing 
and the players do their part 
there's no telling what will happen if we try. 
 
Foul Ball Boy has been forgiven 
and the goat's curse is reversed 
as the Friendly Confines boast a Jumbotron. 
Cubs fans all around the country 
are united by the hope 
that their 'much-loved losers" winning ways go on.
