Be the Wall

Not every ball is meant for six.
You better know your batting strengths.
You better know which ones to leave.
You better know your straight defence.

Particularly if it’s Life
Who’s bowling on a turning pitch.
Do not step out your hasty crease
When keeper Karma’s being a bitch.

Do not present the naked edge.
Do not pursue the obvious wide.
Remember, every run you score
Is first and foremost for your side.
