The first comment said its not a poem. Hello? See definition of couplet. Good one Bob! We are so PC these days, ugh. Statues fall, people are killed daily in big cities, and we are offended by spit? Yes, but not millions of abortions. No, that is perfectly alright? Murder is groovy. Dead police? Nah, that's OK. Panagiota

G'day Bob … baseball almost unheard of here, but we have cricket and the same issue except saliva is used to shine the ball. No more though so the bowlers intend to use sweat - old traditions die hard. Thanks Bob - Lindsay

Thanks,Lindsay. Crikey! I reckon its best bowlers use sweat on the ball - it would take a heap o' spittin' to polish the ball! Good on you always, Mate! - Bob

I agree -especially when they spit in their gloves, then rub their fist in it! Always enjoy your writes. Keep them coming for our delight. Bob

It's not exactly a poem, I guess, but I just have to comment between my laughs! You are so funny!
