POETRY CHALLENGE: BASEBALL
This poet will answer a call,
To write about baseball…
For a younger fan,
A boy who can
Probably explain it all!
The Duck Boat Parade he’s seen
And celebrated our team…
Our good old Red Sox
As a franchise rocks,
To visit them would be a dream.
With balls and strikes and runs,
Getting on base means moving your buns…
And stay away
From that double play,
The kind of cut off that stuns!
Will Big Poppy go another year,
Will “Sweet Caroline” prompt a new cheer…
Thousands of fans
Clapping their hands,
Distract the opposing team’s ears.
Maybe for some it’s just a game,
For true fans the answer is plain…
We will root and toot
til the Sox find the route
To the Pennant and World Series again!
