Ode to the orioles

The Charm City Birds


In spring my birds return home to begin their play.


Games are in the cold of night and some during the heat of day.


The birds are led by a man named Buck,


 Chris Davis at first is as big as a truck.


Manny Machado is as fast as lightning,


 Zach Britton’s sinker is very frightening


The stadium booms, crashes, and smacks


Caleb Joseph cracks bats because that’s his knack


At second Schoop’s stupendously scoops


Ryan Flaherty always dives and swoop


Mark Trumbo has a really hot bat.


His dingers go way past Pratt  


Adam Jones never misses a catch


He can always make the great snatch


 Chris Tillman’s fastball is always quick


Paul Janish makes the ball go Klick


There is nothing better than a hot sunny day.


Besides watching my birds play
