Poetic License: In the shade of Freddie Gray

By Staff | May 13, 2015

In the shade of Freddie Gray

The vacant stands sit still.

No fans to shout hooray.

No anthem sung today,

No luxury box will fill

In the shade of Freddie Gray.

On field, two teams display

Their valor, speed and skill —

But no fans shout hooray.

Sirens wail just miles away —

Dark on the pitcher’s hill

Lies the shade of Freddie Gray.

A miracle catch or play

Won’t give late inning thrill.

No fans to shout hooray.

Respect, fear, shame? We cannot say

But remember well we will —

No fans to shout hooray

In the shade of Freddie Gray.
