A Roster Spot

On my first day of training camp
I hoped to get a roster spot:
But I went to the wrong locale
(It seems that I do that a lot)

And so, instead, I built a home,
And married me a darn-fine wife —
I hoped to get a roster spot,
Instead, I got

A life


* Note: a bevy of helpful people had been advising me to ‘get a life’ for quite some time.
