Baseball Trip

The Mets triumphed! 
I have been a fan for many years
How many of you out there in the darkness 
care about what happened in Citifield
I even have a T-Shirt which shows the Brooklyn Dodgers on it
They were a ground - breaking team
Allowing the first black player 
to show off his skills
They also had the great Sandy Koufax 
Who some considered to be "King of the Jews"
 To his credit 
 he took off on the high holidays
 and inspired poetry when he did!

Wonderful tribute to baseball. It used to be AMerican's favorite sport until Stupid football came along and ruined everything. Uggg, I hate that sport. Baseball is so much nicer.

I agree - baseball is nicer. I do follow other sports. My sister prefers football and says baseball is boring. I don't agree with that and will probably write more baseball poems in the future. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
