A Very Bad Baseball Poem

The park was filled with black and orange
and blue and white
and two neanderthal fans got in a fight.

Back and forth the cries did fly
Let's Go Giants! (shouted out with confidence and reliance)
Beat SF! (came back with defiance)

Let's go Dodgers!
Beat LA!
Neither side could hold the other at bay.

Orange rags swirling in the park
rally rag night - we swung those rags a lot!

Lowry ptiched a solid game
he gave the Giants no shame.
Alou yanked Corea pitching strikes all,
put in Stanton to pitch balls!

As oftimes happens cause our pitching staff ain't sound,
the Giants lost the game when the
closer took the mound.

Alou must go.
Shows he's a schmo.
When he leaves 'em in--status quo.

4-4-7????

OR

We wished he'd balked,
Instead he walked
The winning run on base.

Around he came
Fast as a flame
Ahead of the catcher apace.

Fucking Giants. Fuck the fucking Giants. Tough season.
Maybe I'm just cranky or just partial to poetry about your womanhood. Am I nuts, bird? You gettin' in my head?
