Critter causes commotion at the ballpark [Cramp entry for 02/08/12].

That squirrel must have been possessed
by a demon of some sort.
I mean, I never would have guessed
squirrels even liked the sport.

He streaked across the infield,
his path went left to right.
The ump said, "Keep your eyes peeled,
don't let him out of sight."

His flight had players flailing
as he dashed past outstretched hands,
then leaped up through the railing
to vanish in the stands.

The sideshow finally ended,
the teams resumed their play.
But no one who attended
Will e'er forget that day.
