The Baseball Game
I passed a sand lot yesterday, Some kids were playing ball.
I strolled along the third base line
Within the fielders call.
“Say, whats the score?” I asked.
He yelled to beat the stuffing,
“Theres no one out, the bases full,
Theyre winning forty-two to nothing!”
“Youre getting beat, arent you my friend?”
And then in no time flat
He answered, “No, sir, not as yet!
Our side hasnt been up to bat!”
