poem at 67

keep the line moving, they say
in baseball
(i’d say, in life)
a single here, a double there
a walk, fielder’s choice, an error
just put the ball in play
make even your outs productive
move your teammates from base to base
and when you find yourself on first
try to make it to second
get into scoring position
then get ready to round third
eyes on the coach!
do your best
to make it
