Extreme Basketball

ball slams hard against the floor
running fast so I can score

players try to steal the ball
sharp turn, they slam into the wall

coach is screaming plays out loud
we score a point, he’s very proud

Ref. gives the ball to the other team
they want to score, but we’re too extreme

whistle blows and the game starts
we whizz around the court like darts

too fast for anyone to catch
I think I know who will win the match

I get the ball and run down the court
but I have to pull short

two girls block my way
but I won’t let them ruin my day

I fake left then right
when they realize I’m out of sight

I push the ball high in the air
And cross my fingers it’ll get there

And as you can bet,
I got nothing but net!

    I just want to dedicate this poem to my 7th grade Lit. and Eng. teacher Mr. Schneider, the best teacher EVER! (He's also a basketball coach.)
