“THE PINETREE SANDLOT BALLPARK”
A sandlot here, somewhat fenced in,
Built by my Unc’, now passed away.
I walk around it and used to win,
At baseball when I was young and thin,

“This lot is mine,”They broke the fence and felled the pine.
No memories were there to share.
The “equity” of youth seems clear,
They will demand the past to go,
To forget all except the fear,
Of “Youth Must Rule;” I’ll shed a tear,
For in their eyes my youth won’t show.
