Loaded Bases Poem by douglas scotney


Two theories account for the popularity of baseball:

Inability to Avoid
puts it down to wanting to be hurt,
not knowing you're hurting
and not hurting at all;

Avoidance Ability
says its about hurting,
knowing you're hurting
and not wanting to be hurt...at all.

    Pain is like time, relative. It can be saved and traded as chrono-credits hours arbitrarily moved forward and back subject to the whims of seasons. No pain no photonic gain! (Report) Reply
