A top ten list

I keep checking Misra's site to see if Summer Hymns will ever release anything new...no news on that front, but they posted their top ten lists. This one seemed particularly good.

From Will Johnson, Centro-matic/South San Gabriel, who is touring in that Undertow Orchestra thing soon.

WILL JOHNSON'S TOP TEN RICKEY HENDERSON HAIKUS OF 2005. BY WILL
JOHNSON.

Rickey Henderson
Thank you for ending career
It was beyond time

"Rickey is not here"
"Please call Rickey back later"
Is what Rickey said

No one to talk to?
Maybe talk to yourself now
In the third person

Please put third base down
I know you broke the record
But there's more game left

You are not Lou Brock
You have stolen more bases
But, not cool like Lou

Back in eighty-nine
Your first World Series title
Bash Brothers on 'roids?

You wore blades glasses
Long before they were deemed cool
Fashion pioneer

Do you know the way
To the baseball old folks' home?
Let me show you now

When you were drafted
Ford was U.S. president
I was fucking five!

Finally retired
World Series of Poker now
To keep you busy
