he never made the majors

baseball-931712_960_720he was a heavy hitter but
he never made the majors
despite the fervent hopes
of all his family
and neighbors
they cheered him through
each new at-bat
he got some wood
each time and
he didn’t have
the follow through
to get around the diamond
he never hit a home run
he couldn’t even score
so now you know
why he’s not playing
baseball anymore…
she invites him over
he feels a bit uptight there
he only gets to second base
it’s his recurring nightmare
