Haiku Friday: Mighty Kiddos at the Bat
Take me out to the
Ballgame; take me out waaaaaaay past
My normal bedtime.
Ply me with cotton
Candy — electric blue — and
Hot dogs, hold the bun.
I don’t care if I
See players, umps, dugouts, mitts …
Where’s the ice cream cart?
Root, root, root for the —
Wait, there’s a game going on?
Oh … Vanilla please.
For it’s one, two, three
Desserts — you’ve hit a home run,
At the old ballgame.
What do you remember from your children’s first big sporting event? What do they remember? And do you like cotton candy — or do you have to go with the peanuts?
