Rules of the Game Today

Take the Game of baseball. Played on Diamond with the fair and foul territory being utilized.The players being diamonds in the rough.Who may become All-Stars or Hall of Famers they show potential.Outside the Stadium Walls, they are throwing sticks and stones.They will never be All-Stars, and most likely make the Wall of Shame.It’s a Double Header today, but one game being played with two sides. PLEASE RISE: The two sides are an Umpire and a Judge.On and off the Field of Play.One calls strikes and the other gives an Intentional walk.Now to stay out of the double play one needs to steal a base, while the other steals your home.While you are eating your popcorn, peanuts, and cracker jacks.One picks up a bat to get the game-winning R.B.I.The other picks up a bat to cause damage, its called H.B.I. heads batted in.So please rise and root root root for the home team.For its one two three strikes, you’re out at the old ball game.If they don’t win it’s a shame, and who takes the blame Umpires and Judges No Society does.Not the one who struck out or got the intentional walk.I’m as American as is the Past-time of Baseball, Apple Pie, and Chevrolet.I may sound like a Beast from the East, but I am not going down without a curtain call.So bake those Apple Pies and place them on the window sill like grandma did, I want my slice of pie like everyone else, as it was in the Good Ole Days.Now remain standing for our National Anthem God Bless America.
