Have some haiku

Since it's National Poetry Month, some folks have been posting poems on the bulletin board at work. My favorite so far has been Cat Haiku:

You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will show you.

Grace personified
I leap into the window
I meant to do that

Wanna go outside.
Oh, no! Help! I got outside!
Let me back inside!

Since it's baseball season, I was wondering if anyone had penned any poems about the great game. Turns out that the Baseball Hall of Fame ran a haiku contest last year; among the winners was this gem by Kurt Blumenau:

Smallest Red Sox fans
With shirts too wide for shoulders,
named "ARCIAPARR."
