Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner, featuring Vic Tomlinson! 🙂
A Baseball Game by Vic Tomlinson
There’s nothing like an old ballgame
and even the pre-game warm-ups spark my interest.
The singing of the National Anthem
signifies the beginning of the game.
There’s the camaraderie and commonality
of rooting for your team
in the midst of thousands of strangers.
Here come the hotdog, popcorn,
and crackerjack vendors.
Let us not forget the beer
and soft drink vendors.
We eat our ‘dogs, gulp our beer,
and yell at the umps.
The players try to hit, run, and catch
for usually nine innings of play.
There’s the excitement and roar of the crowd
when you hear the crack of the bat,
and the ball soars in the air
and over the fence.
Win or lose, what an exciting way to experience
a part of American culture,
and pass the time with strangers
who are passionate about the game.
