Imagine World Series Poem Two

Two games to none (despite four errors): Varitek, Bellhorn, and Cabrera (each with 2 RBI apiece) were dangerous last night but Curt Schilling was again a monstah! His perseverance is unstoppable. And his practical will, embodied in his slogan, “Why Not Us,” has that pure “Imagine” quality of a John Lennon.
Being for the Benefit of Red Sox Nation

Imagine that John Lennon wears
a Red Sox baseball cap and war
is over. Smiling from his bed
in the Hotel Excelsior,
he winks and says “Give Sox a Chance,”
calling Curt Schilling’s dominance
over the Cardinals in Game Two
an offering from heaven’s door,
(“That’s Dylan’s line,” George Harrison
reminds him) then plays an overture
from “Hard Day’s Night” on sky-blues harp,
and hums, “that splitter sure looked sharp,
while Bellhorn, Varitek, Cabrera
more than atoned for human error.”
Our Mantra: one game at a time, one game at a time. Go Pedro!
