Play Ball

The deputies
gave el ocho patas a hot foot

eight feet on fire
to be exact

and the city of Ballsmore
caught in the inferno

burned to the ground
the National Guard

was brought in
to protect the ashes

el ocho patas recovered
and walked again

the deputies too
lived another day---

the great
American pastime
