The Last One Chosen

I too was always the last one chosen in
Pick-up baseball games and what bugs
Me now in retrospect is not that I was a
Poor athlete but rather that some
Set of social values had me stand there
Until I was the last one chosen for some
Inconsequential ball game when I could have
Spent that time learning a Beethoven Sonata
Discovering laws of thermodynamics or
Reboring and automotive engine block.
