    Verdi

    Verdi wasn't bad although he
    tipped his hat
    to Beethoven

    it makes me sad, I suppose, that
    Beethoven was hitting all those
    homers and Verdi was sliding into
    first base, all safe, dusting his knees
    and looking to second base

    (and using baseball metaphors when
    talking about classical music is
    risky, some readers will not be pleased)

    oh, hell, I prefer the club fighters
    the bartender in a dive, been there years
    the unknown backup quarterback who
    comes in throwing arrows, that was Verdi

    we should remember the strange courage
    of the second raters who plod on
    through the long evenings
    and the nights are black and long
    and the days go on without an end.

    Maybe these second raters have become the first raters of our times...

    Verdi and baseball and drinking and football - why not?
