"They Hound the Giant"
Hello, steroids, my old friend.
I’m come to inject you again.
Because on Hank’s record I am creeping.
Don’t care if it leaves the fans weeping.
And the vision that I’ve planted in their brains
gives them pains.
And so they hound
In restless days of ninety-eight
I was the man they loved to hate.
Mark McGwire, newly home-run champ.
Sammy Sosa left delightful stamp.
So my arm stabbed, like was theirs, with a big syringe.
It made me cringe.
And now they hound
In San Francisco’s night will soar
seventy home runs, maybe more.
Pitchers throwing without hoping.
Soon they realized I was doping.
People writing col…
umns ripping me to shreds.
Got no cred.
“Fools!” said I, “you do not know.
Did I fail steroid testing? No!
McCovey Cove still faces balls dropping
from the swings that I am not stopping.”
But my words
like strange liquid’s drops fell.
And the people bowed and prayed
new record would not be displayed.
And Bud Selig flashed out his warning.
Seven-fifty-six will be forming.
And the scribes said
“The record is phony!
He put steroids into his bod!
