Found Poem - Defragment

Tom Elenbaas

Found this poem in a journal from 2012:




Some days beg for a new

beginning, like a new

inning following 3 outs

from 3 strikes

and no one gets on base.


Sometimes a redo

is required and

a reboot clears the

cache so it’s possible to



again when only moments

before fragmented clusters and



Defragment my mind

clear my soul’s cluttered cache

and take my low batting average

O God

and help me start

over again tomorrow with a new day.


This is the day that I blew;

Let us rejoice that You make tomorrow new.
