My Hardball Career

I’d like to be a baseball star,
But haven’t had much luck so far.
It’s all been errors, slips, and falls
And strikes and outs and rotten calls.

The pitchers whip the ball so fast
I seldom see it zooming past.
My glove’s no good, my throws are weak,
I’m in a slump and losing streak.

I guess I’ll try for one more year
To see if baseball’s my career.
If not, I’ll simply change my dream
And join a slow-pitch softball team.
