An Ogden Nash Early Blink

On The Future of Jose Altuve

Humbly Offered, By Bill McCurdy


Jeff and Scott – their wounds forgot

Sat down to talk – Altuve

Jeff bid small – and Scott smiled tall

As things did not start – groovy


“Oh, don’t you see – he’s Houston’s heart

The guy that fires our engine?”

“Oh, don’t you see – he’s much too smart

To buy that home town binging!”


Late this year – with outcomes near

Perhaps they’ll find – firm reason

As Jose makes clear – the point of his spear

Is it heart – or most dough per season?

    Jose, can you see
    By the dawn’s early light,
    How dark it would be,
    If you should take flight?
