BASEBALL'S SAD LEXICON - Franklin Pierce Adams Poems


Poems » franklin pierce adams » baseball s sad lexicon

These are the saddest of possible words:
  "Tinker to Evers to Chance."
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
  Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
  Making a Giant hit into a double --
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
  "Tinker to Evers to Chance."
