[ DUP ] Batter up!

   † † †
When it came to faking † † † † †
his earthly demise on the Internets † † † † †
Dan Kozak milked that saucer † † † † †
until the pentagon shaped plate †
was licked clean of soured cream; † † † † †
him slowly dying to death † † † † †  
a little bit each day † † † † †
†  
---stray that he was † † † † †
dutifully reporting for scraps † † † † †
at the back door despite † † † † †  
ongoing health hurdles † † † † †  
† † † †
dragging his mangy ass in tow † † † † †
and ducking all the while † † † † †  
that stealthy Grim Reaper fucker † † † † †
was taking sick'le swings at him † † † † †
† † † † †  
I admit to getting impatient † † † † †  
Could you hurry this along, Fella ..? † † † † †
sometimes saying under my breath † † † † †
Heavens for sake, Leah's waitin for ya! † † † † †
† † † † †  
And he'd cantankerously reply † † † † †
in what loose-leafed resembled poetry †
( especially when three sheets to the wind ), † † † † †
"Godammit! †I'm croaking as fast as I can!" † † † † †
† † † † †  
What an sonof . . . † † † † †
† † † † †  
Obituary was autobiographical; † † † † †
took years for him to author † † † † †
and remains the longest thing † † † † †
ever written in his story † † † † †
[ I'd swear it's a record † † † † †
in the Guiness Book ] † † † † †
† † † † †  
And yet it feels like † † † † †  
he still hasn't left the building † † † † †
†† † † † †  
Anyhoo, this was meant † † † † †
to be a cautionary tale † † † † †
for those of you who think † † † † †
you've got enough balls † † † † †
to liesurely walk the bases † † † † †
dragging out this game of Life † † † † †
† † † †
---everyone eventually † † † † †
faces off with the Pitcher; † † † † †
you better hope it's † † † † †
Fernando Valenzuela † † † † †
during his Dodger years † † † † †
and your time at the plate † † † † †
is over quickly so everyone † † † † †  
can properly say their goodbyes † † † † †
sincere or other wise asses † † † † †
like me will not be able to † † † † †
let you rest in peace † † † † †
† † † †
because we don't really believe † † † † †
you are gone from our lives † † †
†† † † †
mostly due to the extra innings † † † † †  
we suffered through † † † † †
while being held hostage † † † † †
without any proof of Life † † † † †
† † † † †  
† † † † †
