Pirates 100 Loss Season in Haiku

Emo tiny Pirates heart from 2008.

Pittsburgh Pirates fall
One hundred times this season
Spring means hope again.

Pirates keep dreaming
One hundred or ninety-nine games
It’s just a number.

One hundred losses
Seems unreal to baseball fans
Drop in the bucket.

Buccos keep losing
Patience is a tough virtue
At PNC Park.

Pirate fans asking
Where have you gone Andy Van Slyke
High hopes for Pedro.

Original Pirate Black Heart Poem – 2/14/2008.

  1. One more year of loss
    Record setting yes, but still
    Will it ever change?
