yogi berra: fork got taken

so yogi comes to that fork
damned
   tricky
fork
in the road

&  takes it

fork not taken
but yogi

hitting from the right side of the plate
.298 for the year obp .378
30 homeruns 3 stolen bases
(a lot for a catcher)

 takes it

and now he's where it's plenty crowded
but so what
who doesn't go there

& predictions are easy
very easy
of no future

now it's
10/8/1956

nice afternoon in the bronx
probably mel allen

ballantine
rheingold
the three ring sign

going going going
gone!

mickey mantle has a hit, drives in a run
hank bauer, billy martin have hits
enos slaughter in two at bats
goes hitless

yogi berra goes hitless

so what

roy campenella is hitless
pee wee reese hitless
jackie robinson, carl furillo & gil hodges
hitless hitless hitless

when don larsen is done giving up
no hits no walks no runs!*

while striking out seven

yogi jumps on him like
the happiest kid ever

who took that fork



* you can look it up
