Happy sleep is the best of sleep
especially following a Cardinals' sweep.
Now to make the Red Stockings weep
and take pitcher, Homer Bailey, deep
(although in GABP that seems cheap).
For the Brewers we do want to leap
as their once large lead begins to seep
and reduces into a crumpled heap.
The fruits of our labors we shall reap
with a Central lead we shall then keep.


And Johnny Cueto is such a creep, amirite? - Viva el Birdos
