After the Deluge

Down Three Games to None

Darkness alights. The prophets speak
about the number seventeen,
Las Vegas odds, and burning leaves.
We’re two weeks now to Halloween
but still the sacrificial lamb
petitions old man Abraham

for just another baseball game.
Despite the early setting sun
Daylight Savings Time is king
and acquiesces to such fun.
So bring the arm of Derek Lowe
and play the score bravissimo.
Add two more runs to seventeen: I started this in the eighth inning.

Update: see my complete Red Sox ALCS/World Series chapblog here.
