A Little Chin Music

by Hilary Barta

If a batter stays cool in the box
He’s a grad of the school of hard knocks
Leaning in on the plate
Means his chin has a date
With a thousand unnatural shocks.

Hilary’s blog delivers doggerel limerick goodness every day, on film noir, monster movies and other bits of pop culture. Check it out at LimerWrecks.

    Mighty Barta steps in for his hacks
    and he’s chuckling at all the brushbacks.
    Crowding over the dish
    A free pass is his wish
    thus his helmet is riven with cracks.
