Old Man Bianco his vocal voice
stripped of all it’s octave choice

“Liquor, tobacco, you pay the price!”

Short Basketball poem by Duke Beaufort| Details | |

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 | |

Basketball Lifestyle

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

Copyright © Brian Jinanwa

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


Copyright © Stephen James

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 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.

March Madness

march time
hype time

basket
ball bet 

crowds boo
munch goo

fans cheer
drink beer

poor aims
close games

april

time nears
fan fears

bummer

the one
not fun!

cut nets
let's jet

trust yourself

trust yourself !
and don't fall down
trust yourself!
and you will be happy
trust 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
