McDermed, Kelly, Last et al by Michael Ceraolo

McDermed, Kelly, Last et al

One of us would have been one too many,
yet there are several more than one of us
There are no commemorative plaques anywhere,
so this poem will have to suffice
The next time you are at a professional game,
even though it might not have happened at that particular park,
take a moment to remember those of us

who were killed during the building of some parks

Michael Ceraolo is a 61-year-old retired firefighter/paramedic and active poet who has had two full-length books (Euclid Creek, from Deep Cleveland Press; 500 Cleveland Haiku, from Writing Knights Press) and several shorter-length books published, and has a third full-length book, Euclid Creek Book Two, forthcoming from unbound content press.
