More alleged "poetry"

I posted a link to today's print column on my personal Facebook page, and an old college friend (at my age, college friends are automatically old) commented:

I enjoyed your rhyme
About the sport sublime
But I think you left out "cavort"

To which I responded:

It's the second time
I've done this kind of rhyme
And the first time I also used "port"

It's been 19 years --
a lot of brats and beers
Since I last did a piece of this sort

Leaving out such a rhyme
Be it twice or one time
Won't get me charged with a tort

And if everybody's lucky, we'll just leave it at that.

  1. Just leave it at that?
    Nay, the rhymes won't stand pat
    Until pitchers and catchers transport
    To the warm sunny baseball resort
    Where Japanese media hold court
    In the friendly town called Myer's Fort
    Where throwing arms deftly contort
    And managers often purport
    Having more than enough arms to thwart
    All opponents....And please don't deport
    Liriano....We need his support!
    OMG....These rhymes do distort.
    Please stop me before I .....
