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
