D Sign (NAPOWRIMO April 10, 2018)

NAPOWRIMO April 10, 2018

D Sign

When the coach flashed the D sign
my pitching arm better be warm
And ready to retire the side
3 up, 3 down.
Not to get battered
pitching into disaster
my rotator cuff on fire.

Stepping up to the plate
I don’t think about my average
just facing down the fastball.
Out of the park
or hard bounce in the infield
whatever brings the run home.

Getting the D sign isn’t a game
homeruns expected daily
that’s what happens
when you make the choice
to compete as
a D-signer.
