14 Apr 2017: His dominance, which we expect, was shown

His dominance, which we expect, was shown
Last night as he held down the snakes to one.
The anger from the Sunday start was done,
As those performances—he shan’t condone.
The other “ace”, our former friend, was owned
By our offense; the mercy showed was none.
At one point, four straight singles held their tongues,
And they could not fight back in Kershaw’s zone.
It seems the D-backs had a Pharaoh’s dream
And could not wake up as we ate their hopes.
We held them ‘gainst the sapphire-studded ropes
And run by run eroded their esteem.
Tonight, we’ll honor Jackie, safe at home;
His number worn today by every team.
