HOME TEAM *

My team is winning
5 to 2
home field advantage
under the Carolina sun
bases loaded
but we strike out
the opposing team
is up to bat
and finally we have
2 strikes
with a 2-strike advantage
my buddy beside me says
the pitcher should throw
them down the middle
inning 4 is almost over
and we’re halfway sure
to a win
if we keep the home team
advantage.
