Career Rejectory

In the Fifties,
I was 
an aspiring infielder.

In the Sixties,
a poet manque.

In the Seventies,
a besotted newspaperman.

In the Eighties,
a sobered editor.

In the Nineties,
an incipient digiguru.

In the Aughts,
I entertained ennui.

In the Tweens,
my mind
shall greet
my body.

Having accepted that
I won't be playing shortstop
for the Minnesota Twins.
