Haiku 52

Haiku 52

Phillies' balloon bursts,
Fans, who fill stadium, stunned -
Big salaries fail.

Big bats go silent,
Hitting coach loses his job -
Big bats go silent.

All year reserves played,
At years end they sat the bench.
Home run won a game.

On paper Phill's best,
Words never win big ball games -
Players read papers.

Dream team, the Eagles,
World Champs, thought to be Phillies -
Sixers just as bad.

Phill's malnutrition,
Hits lacking, energy down -
Menu, Press Release.
