The Underhand

little petty miscreant
can look you in the eye
then stab you in the back
walk away with a knowing smile

you pitch a curve ball
followed by a fastball
looking for the strike
instead, you hit the batter

though it seems intentional
it messes with your game
not sure which is bruised the greater
your cocksure arrogance when you lose the series,
or the limping batters you’ve pegged along the way

shake your hand they must
it’s only good sportsmanship
doesn’t imply respect
for your underhanded pitching

but then again,
office politics have never been
my forte
