Poem To Mariano Rivera, on his 602nd Save

To Mariano Rivera, from a New Yorker

Mariano, you’re our man,
you pitch as well as any can.
When you step out upon the field,
the batters know they soon must yield.
Your cutters cut them down to size
as fans, in awe, dissolve in sighs!
Good old Mo, you are our man,
the greatest closer in the land.

(PS – Dear Mariano, sorry for the portrait. It doesn’t infringe on anyone else’s copyright, but it also doesn’t do you justice!)

(PPS – Thanks for all your years of inspiring and cheering New York.)
