Colby's Sonnet

A Sonnet for Colby, since I don’t make videos

 

A player who glides to catch a ball,

And hits home runs to escape a bind,

Teleports to first to the shock of all,

Such a player must be hard to find.

 

But Colby, Corzy, or Corey Rainbow,

Easily forgotten for not selling it,

Not playing many games in a row,

Can run, catch, dive and of course he can hit.

 

His cowboy accent, carefree attitude

Make interviews a funny adventure

“He could be better… he needs to improve,”

 Says one crotchety, dated announcer.

 

But I love Colby and I always will

For his plays, home runs, and his fine flat bill.

 

 

 

 

So, maybe it's not the best poetic work ever but this is my sonnet for everyone's favorite rookie (or at least mine). Hope you enjoy it. It may not be as epic as the awesome Fire Burning video but like I said I don't do videos. I threw in some nice VEB jokes just for you.
