  • Larry Bowa Doesn't Want his Head in a Helmet

    The Los Angeles Guerilla Poet Kenny Rose Butts http://www.kennyrosebutts.com has weighed in on the matter with this poem "Hell ... Met", discussing the new Baseball rule in context with a discussion of our greater freedoms:



    Hell...met


    Oh the slippery slide reaches America's pastime
    at first and third
    and coming home...new rules

    The empire
    in the name of securing wire taps, entraps, invades
    from first to the Fourth
    from here to overseas
    warrants

    helmets to enforce the rules
    bases coach or places encroached
    helmets enforce the rules
    no free rides...this line drive
    from baseball hit a coach...
    now we toast
    helmets for base coaches
    us
    towards

    hats off helmets on
    for your protections the pursuit of happiness
    Harley began then from bikers to tricycles
    it's not up to you or mom or dad
    Big Brother is watching and listening and insisting
    your head fits into protective gear
    from ear to ear

    Those slippery slides
    so every head resides within the confines
    of rules that pursue
    not just bases
    in un...American places

    but coaches at first and third...absurd
    America it's past time
    to free our heads so we can
    receive
    according to our needs and play without fear
    of rules that pursue our inner here

    At home plate and bases all over the place
    heads helmeted befitting worst case scenarios
    eyes and ears seeing fear
    from first to third, from home to overseas

    From America's pastime to America it's past time
    oh say can't you see
    what they're doing to thee
    from first base coach to third base coach from first world to third
    world
    it's not the line drive we need protection from
    it's the projection being run that protection comes from covering your
    head
    instead of uncovering
    headlines
    that lead to hell...
    met
    leave your skull and...home free
