Poetic Reds

As the season comes
to a close. I offer this:
a quiz of haiku.

1. Take a walk with me.
Stroll to first base and you’ll see
the world differently.

2. Unexpectedly,
I am the work horse, cast down
by the falling stars.

3. Deliberate as a
tortoise, I learned to snare at
third. Quick as a hare.

4.Unable to start what
others came to finish, I
now finish their work.

5. Like Dante, I bring
an inferno. Composed nightly
on the mound, like dance.

6. I am a thief like
another of my name but
steal only bases.

7. Prodigious swings like
a truth and a lie. Homer
or strikeout – a breeze.

Answers:
1. Votto, 2. Straily, 3. Suarez, 4. Iglesias, 5. DeSclafani, 6. Hamilton, 7. Duvall

  1. ALL RIGHT. Good Job. But you have too much time on your hands. But who am I to talk I am reading it. Thanks for making my day better.

  2. My pitches fly out
    of the park by night and day
    and I am old too

  3. Once I was a defensive master
    but time is catching up with me
    Next year will probably be my last (with the Reds)
    so I hope it is not a disaster
