“The Abominable Baseball Bat,” by X.J. Kennedy

This one is definitely a nonsense poem from X.J. Kennedy’s The Phantom Ice Cream Man: More Nonsense Verse.  It did make me giggle a bit, though.

*

I swung and swung at empty air
And when I heard the umpire
Behind me shout, “Strike three – you’re out!”
My bat turned to a vampire.

The whole team had to pry it loose.
Poor Ump looked sorta flat.
Now ever since, my bat and I
Walk every time we bat.
