Happy Holidays


 Citizens Bank Park has no season
 Why? The holidays are the reason

 Not a creature is stirring in the place
      Including the Phanatic in his locker space

 Pinstriped uniforms once hung with care
 But now the Phillies clubhouse is bare

 Up in the stands where fans cheer
 All is totally quiet to anyone’s ear

 A giant Christmas tree stands so tall
 Dwarfing Mike Schmidt’s statue and all

 While nestling in for a long winter’s nap
 One can visualize what will soon be on tap

 In a matter of weeks, boxes of gear
      Will head south for another year
 But, first let it be known
Players are at a place called home

 Celebrating with loved ones
 Especially, their little ones

 Come April players will once again roam
 In the place the Phillies call home
 But, for now, Phanta Claus’s call:
 “Happy Holidays to one and all!”

(Phillies Insider will take a holiday break until January 5)
