The Kansas City Royals by Gary R. Hess

My favorite baseball team and sports team all around is the Kansas City Royals. They have been through many tough years of late, with only one winning season since 1994. I was too young when the Royals won the World Series in 1985, so most of my memories are full of losing. But, I still love them.

Here is a short poem in honor of my favorite sports team:

"The Kansas City Royals"

  Before the bats of ash
  Before the years of pine
The Royals won it before my time

  Many years painful tears
  Many years dreadful fears
The Royals won it before my time

  Playoffs played without eyes
  Playoffs played nowhere mine
The Royals won it before my time

  Years without post-seasons
  Years without real reasons
The Kansas City Royals are mine
