O’ poor Robinson Cano

I’m not a poet. And yes, I know it.

In just a short while, the Yankees will take on the Seattle Mariners. Which means they will see their old friend, Robinson Cano.

You remember him.

The guy who teamed up with Jay-Z. The guy who chose $240 million by way of the Pacific Northwest over the pinstripes. The guy who was this writer’s favorite player not long ago.

But all that is over.

Somehow, for whatever reason, the inner sonneteer in me surfaced and this is what it spurted out. I call it “O’ Poor Robinson Cano.”

……

The situation was bad, we had cause to be sad.

A player was going to go.

In the offseason, money was the reason

we said goodbye to Robinson Cano.

.
.

O’ Robinson Cano. O’ poor Robinson Cano.

With Jay-Z in hand, took his money and ran.

No matter to Robinson Cano.

.
.

He stood in the box on a cold night in the Bronx.

The fans, they yelled out ‘you blow!’

Once a cheered hero, now revered as a zero.

Booed off the field was Robinson Cano.

.
.

O’ Robinson Cano. O’ poor Robinson Cano.

Truly with no bother, left us with Brian Roberts.

No matter to Robinson Cano.

.
.

Then a night in Seattle Cano went to battle

With Tanaka, it was a show.

Cano took him deep, still the Yankees did sweep.

Moving on from Robinson Cano.

.
.

O’ Robinson Cano. O’ poor Robinson Cano.

Just two homers procured, faded and obscured.

No matter to Robinson Cano.

.
.

Still nothing contrite ‘tween he and pinstripes;

The Yankees are now a foe.

His beard is not snazzy, money must make him happy.

A sad story for Robinson Cano.

.
.

O’ Robinson Cano. O’ poor Robinson Cano.

His pockets not thin, the Mariners won’t win.

No matter to Robinson Cano.
