The announcer sighs
… wistfully
Wood has fallen in love
With a mediocre cutter
He picked up in New York
It breaks too late
Or not at all.

Publicly suffering
Because he lost faith in
His 95-mile an hour heater
And snapdragon curve
Despite the fact
They served him well
Throughout the years

The announcer speaks
… deliberately
“Kerry needs to remember
To dance with the one
Who brough him.”
Good advice
For anyone to hear
