If par is three / then sinking the ball
At two or one is lucky

If you’re out / at three strikes
Then get a hit / before the pitcher strikes you out

But life isn’t a game

What are you sinking?
Who are you striking out?

Pick a lucky number anyway
We gamify everything nowadays

This poem was written to the day eight prompt to write a lucky poem at Poetic Asides.
