Look, the Batting Gods in silhouette
Against the sky! Ruth, Williams,
Gehrig, and Foxx, their war clubs
Such as no man can lift today,
Their statistics, their versatility
As evinced by the major league
Pitching experience of Ruth
And Foxx, and Williams too
Pitched in high school. Gehrig?
The first baseman shrugged off
Broken bones in his hands to
Swing with homerun power.
Look! The Batting Gods! And look!
The Sex Goddesses of the 1920s!
