Bonita came the rake through the gravel voice of her granddad Her granddad or “Pappy” - Was a name that was used by children and adults alike They had to move into his old farm house the same New Years Day Roberto Clemente died Bonita was a big boned girl but she was jack rabbit fast She could throw a hard ball like a boy Just like the way her daddy showed her how But she never dare mention his name Because Pappy always say - “Well, where the hell is he now?” Pappy was a good man - unless he’s drinking wine Now the only days he ever did that - were the one’s that ended with a why "Y" It was the difference from day to night - from pitch black to broad day light Now that farmhouse had a barn window that was strike zone high She used to let her fast balls fly straight and let her sad thoughts float away like butterflies Pappy keeps on calling her name and Bonita just keeps on throwing strikes
