Based on a prompt
PROMPT:

O cricket is cricket and baseball is baseball and ne’er the twain shall meet



Drat!

Cricket in the garden
Forever sings
With piercing ring

Bring the baseball
Bat!

You have too much cheer
For my ear
Turn off your battery
Or lower your pitch

Otherwise
Instead of chirping
You’ll be
Croaking

Here comes my clout
Your innings over

What?
Not out?

Scat wretched pest!
Or I’ll beat you flat
Like -
Splat!

Slam!
Gotcha!
No?
Damn!

I’ll complete you
At the meet!
