Home Run

Updated: May 8

by JOSEPH WOLFE - April 27, 2020


A warm bright day in mid-July

A quilt of blue across the sky

What a day for baseball I thought

Getting loose with a pregame trot

Tempers flare as the game grows near

Our cross-town rivals are now here


The mighty Rocks versus Primetime

Ready to play our land’s pastime

We take the field, they grab their bats

A gold shamrock upon our hats

As we score one and they score two

Record amounts of gum we chew


Pep in my step, I near the box

Calm and unnerved, sly as a fox

Pitch after pitch, the count is full

I take a hack strong as a bull

The ball flies like a bird up high

As if to spin and wave “goodbye!”
