"epiphany" [by David Lehman]

1 min read

The announcer for the opposition

is so one sided in his comment

so unabashedly partisan

for throwing off a pissed off post

He compares him to the Yankees’ Phil Rizzuto

but without Phil’s endearing qualities

that made him perfect for the role

by Private Maggio in From Here To Eternity.

But I’m not posting the pissed off post

when I find out that the guy has run away

a hell of a medical ordeal.

Instead, I choose to develop imagination

that Frank Sinatra played shortstop

for the world champion Yankees.
