Her First Day Of The Show

by Duncan Jones

The field had dried
And the game was tied
’Twas the bottom of the last
The dads looked proud
The moms were loud
And the pitcher pitched it fast

Walked Micah straight
Up to the plate
So calm and clearly versed
One pitch, a flash
An easy dash …
There was Micah safe at first

Then the silver attacked
The bat so cracked
Micah rounded second, third
Then home the score
Now five to four
And she never said a word

When three were out
It was time to shout
The other team was done
Now the people must know
Her first day of the show
Micah scored the winning run
