The New York Yankees uniform,
pristine and pin-striped,
with nary a player’s name
printed on the back has now been
besmirched by corporate greed
with the appearance of an
insurance logo on the left sleeve.
The Yankees worth 7.1 billion,
according to Forbes, will get
25 million dollars annually,
succumbing to the dubious distinction
that they need even more money.
What’s next – for their uniforms
to be adorned with more logos,
everything from diaper swabs to
energy drinks? Motor oil to motor cars?
Players will patrol the outfield
emblazoned like race car drivers.
Their uniforms are quite naturally
sullied with dirt in the course of a game.
Why dirty them even more?
