Meditations on hitting three home runs and winning

On hitting three home runs and winning

It is good. So very
Very good

Shaming
A team for hitting
Home runs
Is like shaming
A Redwood
For being old
And strong

Smallball
Isn’t allball
Manufacturing runs is fine
Until the factory runs down
And no factory is invulnerable

Be your strength
Be proud
For when you say
“Run!”
I say,
“How slow?”
When you say “Bunt!”
I say, “But we do not bunt well.”

Just as a team
That has no power
Cannot be told, “Just have more power!”

We are not perfect
But our
Strengths
Are not weaknesses
