For the Cubs 1-0-7 long years
Crying No-Series-Winner sad tears.
Yes, I live far away,
But soon on that great day
Baby Bruins will sure hear my cheers!
– Steve Shoemaker (1943-2016).
Views from the Edge published Steve Shoemaker‘s Limerick on Chicago Cubs one year before his untimely death October 11, 2016. He wrote it in honor of Harry Lee Strong, another long-suffering Cubs fan.
Tonight the Cubs meet Cleveland for the 2016 World Series.
We republish it in hopes of World Series victory shouts!
