Baseball's Sad Lexicon

 Next Poem          

These are the saddest of possible words:
Tinker to Evers to Chance.
Trio of Bear cubs, fleeter than birds,
Tinker to Evers to Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
Making a Giant hit into a double --
Words that are weighty with nothing but trouble:
Tinker to Evers to Chance.
