"Random Letters" is an audiosonnet written and performed by Anthony J Fuchs.

The poem was posted to YouTube on 17 October 2009.


With rally towels in hand, and raucous cheers,
those faithful fans filled Citizens Bank Park,
so frantic for a win to ease their fear
they instigated that offensive spark.
Martínez, Kendrick, Durbin took the hill
and stifled Houston's batters, who scored three.
But then the fans were treated to a thrill:
four runs in a fourth inning hitting spree,
and five insurance runs would total ten.
We bellowed when Ibáñez crushed one long;
we earned the high regard of William Penn;
we wept as Harry Kalas sang his song.
The tensions of our city were released:
the Phillies won the National League East.
