Playing Ball

I reached in to pull out my all playing ball …
without alcohol

Head up, I breathed brave and stepped up to the plate …
felt like dodge ball bait

Sunshiny bases enticed my run-gained mount …
on feared three-two count

Bat smacked contact so I ran like a wildcat …
clawed first base splayed flat

I reached in to pull out my all playing ball …
fun enriched windfall -
worth future recall

Congratulations CayCay - you have scored a joint first place in my Half Eleven contest! This poem is such great fun and I should have known you would nail it when I asked for “unusual word choices and enjoyable mouth-moments!” I would insert a “home run” pun here, but it would sound silly coming from a British person. I’ll stick to cricket puns! Anyway, congratulations!

this is fun, fun, fun! I enjoyed seeing your rhymes and how that first one was not so obvious to me and then I got it! I love baseball and this poem you came up with for nina.
