A Poetic Crime, Clerihew and Simple (All-Star Edition)

by James Finn Garner

We live in the era
Of Mariano Rivera,
Which will serve to measure historic flow:
Dates will henceforth be noted either BMo or AMo (Before or After Mo).

Edwin Encarnacion
Handles his first base stacion
With skill and bravado
That is the toast of Canado.

Hernandez (Felix)
Somewhere in his DNA’s double helix
Has a velocity gene,
Thus his fastball is never seen.

Hiroshi Iwakuma,
According to ruma,
Pitches well in the state of Washington,
But I’m in bed before their games are done.
