I watched a Game the other day
and Politics was It's Name
but the Captains were as blind as bats
and all the Players Lame.

The Team Captain was at first base
and that team was on a roll
but the opossing team cried foul
and outloud they read the polls

The Team Captain never did a thing
but sit down on first base
and promised much but delivered little
and our time did he waste

Then Player Cain came up to bat
and the other team got frantic
then player cain was struck out
because of his outfield antics

and on and on it went
seemingly without an end
each player to the bench was sent
and neither team could win.

Sometimes that game just makes me sick
and i want to loudly shout
beat them all with a big stick
and then throw both teams out!
