Ode to Joyous Kickball

On a cold and magical December's day,
Some really neat folks gathered to play.

They set up cones, invited friends on their phones and forgot all about their student loans.

At first it looked like the turn-out would be weak,
But one by one people started to sneak




The teams got bigger as the game went on,
We got some kids and even a mom!

They played with great heart, soul and passion,
Laurent and Rashim wore some hot winter fashions.

From fouls to home runs the game did escalate,
Pitchers poison was the illest debate.

After the game we went to St. Stephen's Green,
With beers in our hands we were living the dream!

All in all we had a good time,
So good in fact, it caused me to rhyme.

Thanks to all who endured the cold,
Here's to playing kickball 'til we're 90 years old!
