Stanley Cooper

Rookie - 20 Points (August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Cricket


In the 16th century they introduced Cricket
Along with bats, balls and even some Wickets
Why it’s lasted so long, no one knows but the Brits
Compared to Baseball, Cricket’s the pits

That is the view of most all of us Yankees
Who the Brits are certain are just baseball crankys
For believing crickets so boring
As they go crickety snoring

No one would dream of sipping tea
While watching baseball, we’d all agree
The excitement of sipping tea is the norm
While cricket players attempt to perform

Let’s hear it for the British so 16th century minded
Who when it comes to baseball are so 16th century blinded

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
