Sunday, April 5


The end of the game,
the batter needs fame –
the pitch, the swing, the ball sings;

     blazing by, the shortstops cry,
     the crowds shocked;
          an update:
               Animal heading for home plate!

Holy hell, the runner expels
as he's edified rounding third base.
     He slides – an elephant trampled his face!
