A Battle
'Twas 4:30 p. m. by the watch on my
chain, '
When the locals and their foes lined
up for the game.
With Sejleck in the box, and McLeod
with the mit,
We felt sure we could make our foes
hump quite a bit.
Look I here comes the ball sailing
straight for the bat,
Crack! It's a hit too by gracious at
that.
"Whoa" says the coach, "one base
is enough
For if you get caught now it cer
tainly would be tough.
What the first half over and nothing
gained,
Well, poor Jim Casey, no wonder it
gave him a pain,
After his hitting the first such a
swack,
To put down 0 Just think of that.
Quick give me my glasses, Who's
that in the box,
A pitcher I'll bet from the Great
Red Sox's.
O well, he's easy, just look at bis
- poise, '
Wow! strike 1 called the umpire,
rubbing his nose. '
I'm a wee bit shaky I heard on the
side,
For Canaan, Do you feel so? "1
should say not," said I.
,0 well That's the ending of the first
qnly, you see
Just wait 'till the innings rise up
in the 3's.
And so from inning, to inning it
passed,
Until "Come Home I Come Home!
and he's coming fast,
Hip, hip hooray! and caps wave high
