"Violent Pastime"

The "crack" of the bat!?

Oh no – He's insane...
Run for cover!

It's no longer a game...

Steal home,
reach it safe –
There's got to be a way
out of this place.

Man down – out at third,
still confused about
what's just occurred.
Crawling, bleeding,
across the field –
Where two armed police
refuse to yield.

Struck out finally,
in extra innings –
The assailant ends
his ceaseless sinning.

What can one do?
What can one say?
There is no joy
in Mudville today.

We all have opinions,
both yours and mine –
But must senseless violence,
become our new pastime?
