Baseball—a Staple


Baseball is a staple.
It's been here for ages,
Entertaining history,
Gracing its pages.

It has its World Series,
And Commissioner's Cup.
And Its Hall of Fame
With items stored up.

Famous baseball shoes,
Famous baseball caps.
With jerseys and mitts
And famed balls and bats.

For so many decades
(Seems that long) ,
The sport was.'baseball, "
And it's yet going strong.

They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
