Swinging At Baloney

Swinging At Baloney

The GOD of major league
Baseball hitters
Namely “Dhani”
Told a certain batter
On a certain major league baseball team
Who has hit lots of
Prodigious home runs

Channeling
“Dhani” pronounced “Donnie”
Explained to this certain hitter
Before his recent mild resurgence
To look to go up the middle and to the right –
Up the middle and to the right
And don’t go back
Until it comes back to you
Don’t go chasing the Dragon (home run)
Lest it comes to you
Otherwise you’ll be swinging at baloney
The rest of your career

It’s difficult
To go through times
When it appears
No one or nothing loves us,
But nearly impossible
To endure times
When we can love no one
But ourselves
Or not
Whether we’re swinging at baloney
Or honing in on
The crack of the Truth
