A True Story, for Jeremy

A True Story, for Jeremy

Jeremy hit the ball today,
Over the fence and far away.
So very, very far away

A neighbor had to toss it back.
(She thought it was an air attack!)

Jeremy hit the ball so hard
It flew across his neighbor’s yard.
So very hard across her yard

The bat that boomed a mighty “THWACK!”
Now shows an eensy-teensy crack.
