In The Business

by Louis Antonelli

On your mark, get ready,
get set get set get set get set get set
get set get set get set get set get set
get set (get ready) get set get set get
(are you sure you’re ready?)
set get set get set get set get set get
set get set get (are you ready?) set
get set get set get set get set get set
get set (?) PLAY BALL!
get set get set get set get set get set get
set get set get set get set get
EXTRA! EXTRA!
STRUCK OUT IN THE NINTH WITH THE
BASES LOADED!

*Sometime later,
SET GET SET GET SET GET SET GET SET
GET SET GET SET (get ready) GET SET GET
SET GET SET GET SET
“get set,”
said the man in green pants
GET SET GET SET GET SET GET SET GET
“on your mark,”
added the lady with silver lipstick
SET GET SET GET SET GET SET GET SET
GET SET GET SET GET SET GET SET GET
“ARE YOU SURE YOU’RE READY!”
yelled a voice from the crowd
set get set get set get set get set
get set get set (I was born ready)
GET SET GET SET GET SET GET SET GET
SET GET SET GET SET GET SET
GET SET GET (?) SET GET SET GET SET
GET SET GET SET GET (I love this!) SET
GET SET GET,

“Kid, let me tell you,
one hand washes the other,
both hands wash the face.”

(are you sure)
