Headlines screamed out "Eighty Five", perhaps there will be more
before the "smoking gun" misfires outside pro baseball's door.
Thirty-one are all-stars; the most famous name
pitched last for the Yankees,"cinch for Hall of Fame"... but
no greater player ever lived than "Charlie Hustle" Rose.
He's locked out of the Hall of Fame, most everybody knows.
Pete gambled on the baseball field, sliding in head first.
He also did it off the field. They said that was the worst.
Canseco blew the whistle some twenty years ago
but no one really listened; there was too much dough
being made by everyone, so "on with the show!".
Where the show will end this time, no one yet can know.
"What difference does it make?" some ask, "to get a steroid shot?".
It takes away the level field; to most that means a lot!
Honest players work real hard developing their skill
as cheaters; skilled without a doubt; enhance it with a pill.
Bonds hitting home runs has caught most of the heat
while other "stars" we now find out had also learned to cheat.
Baseball will survive this mess to play another day.
I'll opt for only apple pie and buy a Chevrolet.
