Centerfield Series... Going, Going, Gone - Poem by Juan Olivarez

It's going, it's going,
Yesssss, it's gone,
To the bleachers in right field.
He hit it a ton,
Good and long,
It's headed for beer belly Bill.
He raises his glove,
And he zeros in.
But he's a wee bit out of shape.
That ball just caught him on the chin,
Tape measure homer,
Bandage and tape.
