Field of Play 

Do we need a new dream to believe in?
America’s field has become so uneven.
One team owns a gold fountain head.
One team drinks water and lead.

One team was born on third.
One team has never heard
Anything but strikes being called
(it’s a wonder they showed up at all).

On this field, we can’t find the best player
Because he never even had a prayer.
Struck down, struck out with no at bat.
The fans and umps just allowed that.
