Not Accepting Defeat In 2017

Not Accepting Defeat In 2017 short poem

Photo by Maggio7

Mr.I is gone and the city of Detroit is in a hurt
But baseball fans will just rub their hands in the dirt

The Detroit Tigers of 17’ are on the prowl
It’s gonna be an exciting spring when they start their growl

With J.V. rearing back and throwing his heat
The other team has no choice but to face defeat

Brad is running his Tigers team from the dugout
He’s hoping to see his players get their winter funk out

Iggy has hands that are so soft that they wouldn’t breaks eggs
But the team has hopes that they will be winning from his legs

With the young Danial Norris living in his van
I really don’t care…he’s great and I’m still such a fan

I see the future in a rookie named Jacoby making catches over his head
He makes the players on the other team wish they were still in bed

Avila and McCann are running things behind the plate
The pitchers on the staff love being their battery mate

Zimm and Boyd will have hitters buckle their knees
That curve ball they throw just makes them hitters freeze

Fulmer is the youngster on the team who won Rookie of the Year
But his beard is so thick he looks old when he looks in the mirror

The bullpen has Wilson, Wilson, and Greene in the middle
They’re going to toast opposing hitters like they are on griddle

In the 9th they have K-Rod to shut things down
His changeup makes the best hitters look like a clown

They have Ian and Nick who cover the bases
It causes the other teams to have fear on their faces

According to my wife JD Martinez is hot and her favorite
But I assume most women who watch favor it

J-Up is catching balls that should be homers in left
He’s sure to make everyone think there was a theft

Baseball has such a tremendous effect on a city
That’s not from me, That quotes From Mike Illitch and its witty

The players hope to change World Series history
And bring Detroit a World Series victory

This team will pound opponents like a piece of meat
Because Tiger teams are proud, Not Accepting Defeat

Need Not Suffer short poem

The tears were walking along with laughter. My face was roasted. The fish-men were moving the political wheels. As the chaos was widening, the humming birds started to depart. And the seeds were catching fire from anonymous snipers. The candle
