Macho Macho Mania

by Hilary Barta

That angry young Cub named Zambrano
Takes aim at team mano-a-mano.
.        Their Triple-A game
.        Fills Carlos with shame
And his rage will not wait till next anno.


Hilary Barta handles his rage by posting limericks every day at LimerWrecks.

    A great effort – and without even an aromatic hint of bat guano!

  2. James Finn Garner wrote,

    All right! Literary references! Soon we’ll need the annotated and footnoted version of the site. Studies in Bardball.

  3. Hilary Barta wrote,

    Crap! I mean, guano! That should have been “will not wait”. Copy boy!

  4. James Finn Garner wrote,

    The editor’s pretty attentive,
    and readers like something inventive,
    But that all goes for naught
    if a change isn’t caught
    and the writer is anal-retentive.

  5. Todd wrote,


    want to be

    a macho


    (Jim, your comment/limerick is both highlarious and highly relevant. Very well done!)

  6. Hilary Barta wrote,

    The error I mentioned was mine
    The editor published the line
    I don’t cast aspersion
    on either rhyme version
    I just like to hear myself whine
