The Game

The best ball of all

It isn’t square

It does not tear

You can hear it call


The whistle it makes

Like your lips

May make you take,

A pitch and watch you flip


Watch the pitcher

Watch it’s juice

Watch the pitcher

As he gets loose


Watch the pace

Now you’re up

Like a horse race

Fix your stirrup


Watch the sand

Might be in your cleat

But don’t get banned

After your defeat


Take it slow

As time is money

No wind to blow

These days are sunny
