Finally, opening day has arrived for both of our faves

Seemed a long time to wait since World Series days

It’s been a really long time for the Cubs out of competition

Diehard fans are getting tired of this annual repetition

Diehard fans are hoping they don’t die before the fact

The fact being the miracle of the Cubs staying intact

To not really reach the World Series, but to be the victor

Should this happen, the shock will set off the scale’s Richter

Sox and Cubs on a winning streak with no record of defeat

It may be April Fool’s Day but truth and reality meet

How long this reality lasts remains to be found

160+ games to go and maybe, just maybe – a championship comes round
