Today's headline poem is based on 25-year-old Clayton Kershaw's $215 million seven-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Three kids jump in
Driving home from school
Half-eaten lunches become afternoon snacks
My eyes on the road, ears open as they all wanna go at once...
Art was fun, my friend was mean, we dissected a cow's eyeball...
That's a lot of money!
my boy gasps
when he hears the man's radio voice
"Couldn't that be used for something else?"
Like pieces of a high-rise puzzle all laid out, where do I start?
Dinner at the table
Eat until you are full
Do not go to excess
Take what you need
Do not waste
Meanwhile... hypocrites make turkey sandwiches for a homeless man wearing blue
Game starts at six
