It is Opening Day Eve! - A Hunt and Peck

I feel tingly.

The day is nearly here,
That day we all await
With Carlos Martinez on the mound
And Yadi behind the plate.

Of course the game’s in New York
Not in the ‘Lou.
So the Cards will bat first
And score a run or two
(at least hopefully,
but we will just have to see).

My excitement is palpable;
I can hardly contain it.
My apologies, coworkers,
In I shall reign it.

It’s just... baseball is tomorrow!
It’s hard to believe
The long off-season's nearly over
For it’s Opening Day Eve!
