Here’s another great poem by Michael Ceraolo. According to the author, this is just one part of what will be a larger collection of work, forthcoming!
This is a story of baseball:
most here played,
not all played in the majors;
others of us were involved in the game
in different peripheral ways
Some of us achieved fame
Some achieved shame
Some were between the two extremes
Few of us are remembered nowadays
Some of us stayed in the game in other ways
after our playing days were over,
all of us are out of the game now,
we are able to have one more say
