A wing and a prayer
My loyalties stretched universally
Cheering and ranting, what else is there
My only goal is to see a pennant

Players came and went
The right field bleachers: my inner sanctum
Fans joshing about their lives
Ignored the brew sip

Concentrated on the field of play
Temperament dictated by the day’s outcome
Cherished my encyclopedia of baseball
The Wrigley Field melting pot came alive

Cliques and friends, never lonely
Harry Carey used to cheer me up frequently
My last appearance, the 2016 ring ceremony
I finally saw what I waited for many decades.
