Once upon a spring so dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
How distinctly I remembers how it’s been in past Decembers,
And the silken sad uncertain promise of each high school pitcher
Our young arms I thought were stronger; hesitating then no longer,
Deep into the outfield peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing
Back into my office turning, for that long-term deal still yearning,
Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
Then this manager beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
Much I marveled this ungainly man to hear discourse so plainly,
But the Peña, sitting lonely on that placid bust, spoke only
Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
This new manager beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
Thus I sat engaged in guessing, Desi Relaford assessing,
I had praised payroll taxation, contemplating my rotation.
“Peña!” said I, “dugout leader! Ask a Baseball Primer Reader!
“Peña!” said I, “clubhouse leader, we don’t have a Derek Jeter!
“Be those words our sign of parting, Muser clone!” I shrieked, upstarting—
And the Peña, offense stunting, still is bunting, still is bunting
Wins renown for Little Ball.
