The Yankees/Mariano Rivera’s 1000th Game

by Stephen Jones

There’s a question of ageing
Waging within the team’s locker room
Is in the tabloids & elsewhere
Wherever it is a pastime’s chatter

But tell how Mariano Rivera
Still scares batters how
One pitch crafted over years
& delivered to perfection

Still splinters ash still confounds
Batters makes managers scramble
After a record 1000 games
His home is still the mound
