Baseball Prank Lesson #4: Bread As Bait

To bread I do not ask to teach me
but only not to lack during every day of life.
I don’t know anything about light, from where
it comes nor where it goes,
I only want the light to light up,
I do not ask to the night
explanations,
I wait for it and it envelops me,
And so you, bread and light
And shadow are.
-Pablo Neruda, “And because Love battles”

Having bread is good.  Not having bread is bad.  Discovering that there is a snake where you previously assumed there was bread is the worst.  You are not alone Deion Sanders, you are not misunderstood, you are a glorious grain of humanity and I wish you all the bread in the world.
