A prophetic clerihew




Ezekiel
was full of prophetic zeal.
He was only wrong when it came to bets
on the Cubs and the Mets.

What are Cubs and Mets?

A Secular Franciscan said...

Baseball teams often named as "losers" - though the Mets did win the World Series in 1986. The Cubs have not won since 1908.

Oh, and has any namesake of Hezekiel been betting on either or both?

A Secular Franciscan said...

And now the Cubs have won, requiring that I revise the clerihew!
