The perfect distance

By

Astronomers debate an expanding universe

while philosophers note passing time

but the perfect distance really exists

Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test?

in a ballplayer racing down the line

Ninety feet from home to first

(now how'd that interval ever arrive?)

splicing human speed with cowhide toss

for plays so close ...

thirty thousand fans can't decide

But it's this perfect distance that narrows space

between generations of fathers and daughters and sons

who watch the game and measure life

and laugh when their team has won.
