The Mets, known for their auspicious beginnings
Are once again perfect through their first nine innings
Six and two-thirds from their ace of need Niese
Two-out hits that you thought never would cease
Grand slam from Cowgill, ribbies from Byrd
What outfield? On this day, question’s absurd
Let optimists reign, and down with all reason
One thing, though: must we continue the season?
