Clerihew - 'Anabolic' Barry vs Hammerin' Hank

Barry out-homered Hank
His inspiration? May I be frank?
'Twas McCartney and Lennon and the poem they penned
"I get high with a little help from my friends"

***Hammerin' Hank was Hank Aaron's nickname...Barry Bonds broke his all-time home run record "with a little help" from his steroid friends

    This is so clever Tim, a perfect example of how to write them. Congratulations on your win. Hank's light still shines brightest for most, myself included.
