An ode to John Lackey - A Hunt and Peck

To our favorite pillar of salt.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Oh John Lackey!
You hath signed with the Cubs up North.
I wish you well going forth.

Oh John Lackey!
The salt that lingered 'round your countenance shall be missed,
And how you would stare,
And yell,
And stomp around when you were pissed.

Oh John Lackey!
A cowboy, a gunslinger, one of the last of few.
I used to dislike you,
But I do not now.
Though I hope the Cardinals hit lots of dingers off you.

Oh John Lackey, you marvelous S.O.B.
