Dick Skinner was a very dense poet
Offensive...though he didn't know it
     For he crapped his shorts,
     ending his days in sports
He still stinks, though his pants never show it

If I were

If I were an English mum

Hop into my sports car
And date my secretary!

Golf's My Favorite

Of all the sports, watching Baseball's the best

I've less interest, but watch some of the rest

        But I'm pleased to report

        Golf's my favorite sport

It's healthy, fun, and a challenging test.

Short Sports poem by Izzy Foxx| Details |

xianghua cherry blossom of the east

she dances with her blade
her beauty unparalleled
the petals blow around her
with the gusts in her hair

though many battles she has fought
never will a single scar
blemish the beauty she sports
for she is blessed as such

Short Sports poem by Robert Pettit| Details |

Life is Like Sports

Life is like sports because we are a team. 
We strive each day to fulfill a dream. 
We can stand tall, 
and as strong as a wall. 
As different colors and races, 
we belong in our places.

Short Sports poem by Yolanda Jones| Details |

the telly

I called it love
you called it convience
I called it affection
you called it an intrusion
I called it heaven on earth
you called it a sports car
I called it romance
you called it boredom
I called it friendship
you never bothered to call back

The Nascar Race

Around and around the track they go

And who will win, well you just don't know.

When they crash or spin out

That's what it's all about.

Without it , it's a pretty lame show.

The Fan

There’s no nut torrid like a sports fan
He wants to see feats not known to man
Watching from his hot seat
While goliaths compete
For the top, the best since time began

Brett Favre looks hot in his Wrangler blue jeans

You know that cool dude ate his spinach greens

     Has the perfect TV face

     With the girls he scores first base

If only he could master passing screens

To Rhyme Or Not To Rhyme

An ad for fancy sports shoes
tells the world to 
"Just do it! "

Dash off lines of rhyme or
free verse, haiku or 

Whatever suits your mood
of the moment will do 
the trick

Bill Shakespeare of yore
nasally intoned, 
"As you like it."

Short Sports poem by Sharon Morken| Details |


Games Games Games
I prefer sports to life
Your so nice to my face	
Negative tongues once I say “bye”
All the words, offers, actions were fake
Found out when you ignore me point blank
I could lie and say I don't care
Misfit for life
All you'll do is stare

Short Sports poem by Jimmy Anderson| Details |

Football My Fav

There once was a sports game called football.
Where the players knew how to trip and fall.
   They were clumsy it's true.
    You see they wore Panther's blue.
And the coach never knew what to call.

Boys to Men

As boys when at dances when at dances 
when a girl gets close we look at the grow.
As teens at school dances we cant keep
our eyes off their headlights.
As adults when at dances we cant take our
eyes off of sports on tv.
As seniors at dances we cant keep our eyes open.

Boxing Bee

Float like a butterfly sting like a bee
Dancing and prancing, “Frazer can’t hit me”
   Frazer’s punch was a killer
   Smoking hot in Manila
Refutes the Rope a dope prophet Ali!!

Sports Retarded

I am so retarded in the area of sports. Sometimes it really does get me down.
It's so embarrassing not to know anything at all 
about how to play ball,
and please don't think of me as a clown
What excactly does a baseball player have to do 
in order to 
score themselves a touchdown?

Short Sports poem by Autumn Page| Details |

the last year

friend loss

love findings
self findings

some more loss
cross country
new friends
still grieving over losses
still searching for the answer
no fun

The Jerry Springer Show

About this show,
My girls are amused,
Interrupting my sports,
Intruding my news,
To the television,
Their eyes are glued,
Ignoring mom cries,
Snacks or food,
So a series,
I just viewed,
And I thought it was,
Oh so rude,
On a talk show,
Girls fighting half nude,
I found it unpalatable, 
I found it lewd..

The Caribbean

small islands surround by the caribbean sea
from the greater and lesser antilles
Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba, Guyana just to name a few
the place where tourist comes to see the caribbean view
music, beaches, sports our culture they come to see
from that hard labour they want to be free.

The Oklahoma Sooners are my favorite team.
  There school colors are crimson and cream.

  They can run a ball and score real high.
    Make the other team fumble and cry.

             Yeah Boomer Sooners.

Short Sports poem by Paul Curtis| Details |


The way into my heart
Is not with silver or gold
Nor money or jewels
Or five star dining
Expensive sports cars
And holidays abroad
It’s nothing of material worth

The way into my heart
Is a gesture of kindness
An unselfish act
You holding my hand
And gazing into my eyes
It’s a gentle caress
It’s simply being you

Short Sports poem by Paul Beadnall| Details |


Our town sports a true passion
middlesbrough f.c. is like fashion
that will never ever go out of date
even though less winning and fate

...Right from back in my early days
i followed the boro home and away
spending weekends and plenty of money 
but was all worth it attending wembley.

Dedicated to Callum M.F.C. Mcguinness

Short Sports poem by BENEDICT JOHN| Details |

The sun

The sun is hot
With a few bright spot
The sports are cool
But never go near it like a fool
The sun is a hot star
And it can melt an iron bar
The sun gives us light
But never look at it with your sight
When the sun dies and forms a black hole
You might ask “where is the sun’s soul? “
Without the sun our world would be dark
With no spark!

Short Sports poem by Amy Merrell| Details |

Summer Champ

I love summer,
With a new-comer,
We own a sports camp,
To create a champ,
I have a job, To feed a mob,
But it is fun,
In the sun,
Where i will play, 
Waisting all day,
Swimming with a crowd,
Every one so loud,
City people in the country,
Looking for a shady tree,
I can't wait for summer,
Please don't be a bumber.

Short Sports poem by romeo naces| Details |

Chasing Accidents

Such a drab drag 
  city life has become
    that we tend to seek out 
      some sizzling highs
        in extreme sports 
          with spectacular incidents.

Thus, in the blur and haze 
  of speed-driving,
    we barrel down straight 
      and well-paved highways,
        zooming away, chasing 
          vehicular accidents!

Short Sports poem by Sara Kendrick| Details |

One Bold Spring Day

One day of spring in February
Jonquils send forth their blooms
Found warm coat unnecessary 
Wore warm air draped costumes

Sky of sky-blue satin sports dots
Of gauzie dotted swiss
Great this experience snapshots
A day to reminisce

When tomorrow's winter's air cold
Blows 'pon my northern door
One day of spring so very bold
I'll remember once more

Short Sports poem by Sara Kendrick| Details |


Cottonwood now sports purple blossom
Open faces sun seeds entomb
Total beauty in nature's landscape
Thanksgiving to God for escape
Opened heart to receive beauty
Now refreshed return to duty
Wonder how many passed that tree
Obliterated to even see
Open my eyes_heart Lord each day
Do let opportunities pass my way

(Obliterated here used to means
wiped out ...)
