Emo tiny Pirates heart from 2008.

Pittsburgh Pirates fall
One hundred times this season
Spring means hope again.

Pirates keep dreaming
One hundred or ninety-nine games
It’s just a number.

One hundred losses
Seems unreal to baseball fans
Drop in the bucket.

Buccos keep losing
Patience is a tough virtue
At PNC Park.

Pirate fans asking
Where have you gone Andy Van Slyke
High hopes for Pedro.

Original Pirate Black Heart Poem – 2/14/2008.

    One more year of loss
    Record setting yes, but still
    Will it ever change?
