Response to Tornado
I thought this poem was a little bit of a funny story during a scary time. Lyle was i bigger kid who was slow but wanted to play sports. The kids let him play by being the catcher for baseball so he wouldn't really have to move, but he wasn't too good at catching the ball. One day when they were playing a tornado struck near by so they all took for cover except Lyle who stayed at home plate. When the tornado had pass the boys came out and Lyle had caught a fish flying from the tornado where we has standing. I liked the last line were it says "He had caught it over home plate, right where he had lost so many in the sun." It's making fun of Lyle a little bit using some irony.
