Short Basketball poem by Duke Beaufort| Details | |

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?

Basketball Lifestyle

It's not a sport

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

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

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

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 J.T.| 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.
