Old Man Bianco his vocal voice
stripped of all it’s octave choice
creaked and crowed in age and vice

hawkers

Hyperbole is a spots cast
Announcers have egos so vast
My ears must have rest
From this lambasting pest
Collection of morons amassed


Author's note: Is it getting worse, or is it just me?

Short Basketball poem by Brian Jinanwa| Details | |

Candy hearts

Basketball
It's not a sport
It's a lifestyle
No one understands
What it means to play it
Not for the money
Not for the fame
But the love for the game
Basketball
Not a sport
It's a lifestyle

Short Basketball poem by Stephen James| Details | |

Tree of knowledge

Some would ask are you there?
Does it end like this?
Do you have a **** to spare?
Some would say it's ironic
that you hung yourself
from the tree of knowledge 
and no one knew you were there



Short Basketball poem by Jimmi Canada| Details | |

The collector

Take me there,
walk it upstairs,

Do it anyways,
ignore the plains

You've been there before-
within a walk or a gaze

It's sin to return these ways

So heed the fault,
build and then praise

Short Basketball poem by brittney lopez| Details | |

This is me

My knees were the things that 
kept me up and my skin is my 
cutting board my eyes are the 
rain clouds to the fire running 
down my arms and my heart is 
the fire place that keeps me 
burning so calm

Short Basketball poem by Honestly JT| Details | |

Beyond The Arc

It was like a free throw 
from the three-point line.
I had all kinds of space and time;
It was a bank shot right off the board,
Then through the rim and net;
I scored.

Manny's Ghost - The Village Street Rhymes

Manny's standing in the dark
On the court in Tremont Park
Waitin’ on a game to play
Any chump will do today
And what you think the punks will pay
Winner goes and loser stays
Standing in that freaky dark
On the court in Tremont Park

Short Basketball poem by kay alexander| Details | |

trust yourself

trust yourself !
and don't fall down
trust yourself!
and you will be happy
trust yourself!
and be yourself
be yourself!
and be happy who you are
be happy!
and you will grow wings and fly
fly!
fly to your dream
dream!
of something big

Short Basketball poem by Phillimon Sefake| Details | |

1

You may feel down,
Feeling like giving up
But you must rise forth,
And continue to move forward
Move in faith towards your purpose;
It may feel painful now
But your purpose is being;
Formed through your pains
You shall soon see it was;
Worth it.

Short Basketball poem by Michael Miers| Details | |

quick

Sweep, old lady, sweep away
the tin
din
and dust
of the day
breath as the sun sighs and
settles into the
ground
consider the satellites as they
come back
around
gather the children on the
wide fields you have
found
Sleep, old lady, come Monday
and dream
