The Day is Ruthian
of games, Bronx Sultan of Swat:
Forever The Babe
Echoing my post from yesterday a bit: it’s always a good day to celebrate baseball. And who deserves a day of celebration more than Babe Ruth? George Herman Ruth put up stats as both hitter and pitcher that still stand in the top 10 of all time, and he did it while maintaining a famous appetite for good food with a physique to match.
Fat Cats crushed the House
That You Built, casting shadows
of shoes still unfilled
My haiku draws its inspiration from the NaWriPoMo prompt from way back on day 20 to include kennings (a phrase that describes something without using its actual name) in a poem. Baseball is full of them.
Let’s hope today finds us all batting 1000.
