BASEBALL'S SAD LEXICON - Robert Bridges Poems


Poems » robert bridges » 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."
