One-sixty-two games. What fool could condense
Them into only one? Each half-inning
Would be nine games, if ratios make sense
In strict proportion. So fluid a thing
Such as this undulating game, though bound
By rigid numbers, nine and three like squares
Is named after a ball that's mostly round.
No one diminishing value compares
One game to many. When we tried, the game
Defied us, stretching onward to include
The post-"season". Extra innings name
The playoffs in this code simple and rude
And broken. But it is enough to pick
A winner, and so the format will stick.
