Walk away Walk away Walk away
From gods who demand thoughtless obedience
From pettiness that will make you petty
From anger that will eat your insides
From abuse which steals your soul
Gaining strength with each stride
Alone, arm-in-arm or in tandem
Yet do not run away in fear
You, first among equals
Holding head high

Baseball in Heaven
There were two old guys, Abe and Sol, sitting on a bench in a park feeding pigeons and talking about baseball.
Just like they did every day, Abe turned to Sol and asked, "Do you think there's baseball in heaven?"
Soloman thought about it for a minute and replied, "I dunno, Abe, but let's make a deal:
If I die first, I will come back and tell you -- and if you die first, you come back and tell me --if there is baseball in heaven."
They shook on it. Sadly, a few months later poor Abe passed on.
One day soon afterward, Sol was sitting there feeding the pigeons by himself when he heard a voice whisper, "Sol... Sol...."
Sol responded, "Abe! Is that you?"
"Yes it is Sol," whispered the spirit of Abe.
Sol, still amazed, asked, "So, is there baseball in heaven?"
"Well," Abe said, "I got good news and I got bad news."
"Gimme the good news first," said Sol.
Abe said, "Well... there is baseball in heaven."
Sol said, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin that!?"
Abe sighed and whispered, "You're pitching here on Friday."
