Poetry, Status Quo, & Baseball by Doug Draime

doing this for nothing,
like the rest of you
but i get
waylaid for not
writing like
the status quo
fuck the status quo

i can’t buy a can
of beans
with this poem

as i listen to the
world series
on the radio
because it’s
no longer on non cable
TV

you got to be able
to afford to watch
america’s favorite
pastime

  1. The incredible Mr. Draime does it again. I did a reading at Quail Ridge Books here in Raleigh today and then came home to another fine Doug Draime poem. What a great day! Time for a brandy, I’m thinking …

    That’s a very nice thing to say. Thank you, Harry.
