#18 Poem a Day

Ball Player

The Dodgers first to integrate,
cross color lines with much debate.
A black boy with the temperament
to play through bigotted excrement
with talent, poise and tolerance
while white folk kept on hollerance.

Jackie Robinson, number 42
known to steal a base or two
made his point upon the field
with steel that would not yield
and a will they could not tame.
All for the love of the game.
