Bisons Game, Buffalo, NY

Last night we scored cheap tickets for one of the last Buffalo Bisons games of the season. Watching and feeling all of the verbs of the game got me in a baseball-writing mood again. This year has brought on lots of baseball poems, including: When I'm Up, Dirty Secret, and I Am the Batter. It's funny how the end of one season (baseball) signals the beginning of another (school). May this year be a home run for all of you!
Students - this is another list poem. You can see that the whole first stanza is simply a list of different exciting parts of baseball. The second stanza explains that this is a list of reasons. List poems usually do that, have a "twist" at the end.
If you have considered "following" The Poem Farm, I would be so grateful if you would do so. I hope to have 100 little squares over there on the right-hand side by my 200th poem. Such a show of support is a good way to demonstrate to publishers (and I have a few projects out there) that people may actually purchase books with my poems in them!
