When it was determined that San Francisco and Baltimore would be playing each other in the Super Bowl, all sorts of bets were made between our two mayors, senators, congress-people and others. Amongst those who bet were novelists Armistead Maupin and Laura Lippman, who agreed to pen an ode to the other’s city upon losing the game.
Herewith is the poem that Armistead Maupin wrote.
The Virtues of Baltimore (After Pondering Weak and Weary)
By Armistead Maupin
Who makes Baltimore so fine?
That linebacker who took a stand
For marriage equality in Maryland?
I lift my glass with a way-to-go
