27 Fish

By Stuart Shea
.

27 fish came up,
27 fish went down.

Baiting his hook with sinkers
Sliders, heat, and curves,
Halladay set down every fish
And he betrayed no nerves.

27 fish came up,
27 fish went down.

Snaring every one
And tossing them in his boat,
Halladay did a good day’s work
And earned a right to gloat.

27 fish came up,
27 fish went down.

Hunter, Koufax, Robertson,
Bunning, Wells, Buehrle,
Halladay is now in
Interesting company.

27 fish came up.
27 fish went down.
