A perfect game was pitched
batters mowed down like flies
infield stayed alert
shortstop thinks of pecan pies

outfield made the shfts
play every batter perfectly
but pitcher knew his stuff
threw strikes just enough

catcher was on his game
knew each batter to a dime
went to the mound twice
told the pitcher he had time

manager in the dugout
chewing up a storm
dropped his glasses
when the last out was in form

now the game is in the book
everyone is in awe
but the clever pitcher
goes home and loves to cook
