July 4th, 2008 Illustration Friday Fierce
They never give up, nor surrender to fatigue
These the boys, of the Babe Ruth Little League
Shorter than his bat
Weighing slightly more than his helmet
There was never a hitter quite as fierce
Standing at the plate, was Little Timmy Pierce
As ball left hand
Tension crackled in the stands
His bat did twitch and with a mighty swing
Lil' Timmy had hit the tar out of that pitch.
The topic today, was "Fierce." I drew this whilst listening to a game yesterday. I was working on it when Jim Thome hit a big two run homer in the 8th to seal the win for the White Sox. Big Jim is a fierce hitter indeed, so I wrote my little verse, and decided to use it for Illustration Friday.
