Anonymous ballpark poet blames it on Karma

John Hersey did the cover illustration for this week's issue of the Guardian.

A self-identified "anonymous ballpark worker" has emailed the Guardian a poem in response to this week's cover story by George McIntire. Read it after the jump.

Bad Karma Giants

The Giants are getting blown away.
It seems that they have lost their way.

What should the Giants do?
Sign that contract with Local 2!

The bad karma is just too strong.
Giant's management must right this wrong.

Ballpark workers can't live on garlic fries.
Give us our due, that's what is wise.

Larry Baer, this is your call.
Make it right, or suffer and fall.

Do it now, do what's right.
And put that pennant back in sight!
