Torment weaker kids for sport
For they have little self esteem 
And compensate by being mean

Is vicious, muscular, and mean
It, like man, hunts for the thrill
And finds sport in a needless kill

Undocumented hand sport

Now Ive never been terribly sporty

For exercise isnt my forte

But Ive finally found

A sport that is sound

It involves getting naked and naughty

Short Sport poem by Honestly JT| Details |


I finally have my soccer ball;
I've spent hours working on my ball control.
This sport, I enjoy it;
It feels good to finally try it.

The Spider - Chapter 29, Verses 64, Holy Koran

And this life of the world is nothing but a sport and play

And as for the life after doomsday

It is more real, forever to stay - 

If they knew it anyway!

Groper head and shoulder, boiled

We loose every game 

Drives the supporters insane

But we good for an after game brawl

Short Sport poem by Chris Matt| Details |

High School Football-Favorite Sport

Under the lights on Friday night.

High school football starting to ignite.

Merciless to everyone.

This is war, not for fun.

Winning state is a beautiful sight.

Short Sport poem by Haldor Paulsson| Details |

Sports is destroying the air

A Swedish skier takes the plane 

to the other side of the earth

and spreads out the soot

for many athletes is sport more important

than clean air on the globe.

Short Sport poem by tom bell| Details |

The Color of Pain

does pain sport a color?

does it have a special taste?

it there an odor to associate

it with?

an awareness of its own?

who the hell knows...

but sure does hurt!!

The two below are whom I support

When they win I so beam

This game of games I import

Hide and Seek

The sport I love is Hide and Seek

I try to hide for at least a week

I hide when her mom comes by

If not I would surely die

I know she's close when (it) starts to speak

Short Sport poem by Joe Flach| Details |

My Favorite Sport

My favorite sport is that of football

Now, I am an American if you do recall

So please understand

We can use our hands

And not get a red card if our opponent should fall

That's the way that God made me I'm thinkin.'

If I start quaffin' ale,

Joseph is my darling son
Often he says daddy come;
Sport and study , all is well,
Everybody plays with him
Playing football , next to book,
Happy always on the  pitch.

Short Sport poem by Barbara Gorelick| Details |

Little League

He looked so darned small at the plate

For the pitch he just couldn't wait

Got a high fast ball

He swung for the wall

You'r out! But to mom he did great!

For the Favorite Sport contest....

Short Sport poem by Robert Heemstra| Details |

March Madness

March Madness is here
college fans and beer

theyre at the sport bars
watching future stars

they got their brackets
hold Easter Baskets

basketball is loved by some
than others just think its dumb

Short Sport poem by Marty King| Details |

my main remedy is you

my main remedy is you in many a volume

you cure me of the sharp edges of my center in every column

when the sport of existence is hard to maintain

you form a unit with me so we can become one sane brain

Short Sport poem by Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen| Details |

No Favorite Sport

I do not have a favorite sport.

Folks near me cheering laughing, snort.

At times I sit in bleachers,

And watch the gaming creatures.

I much prefer a tasty torte.

Call Me Crazy

Basketball is my favorite sport of them all

Watching those sexy men run with a ball

Just want to meet one

Reach out and grab some

Need a shower or massage just give me a call


Short Sport poem by Tim Smith| Details |

Wearing of The Green

There was a young Brit named Kathleen

Who's a distant heir to the queen

But on St. Patrick's day

All the Irish will say

She is able to sport the green


Short Sport poem by Stephen Petluk gentle fury| Details |

Jai Alai

She loved to play and win at Jai Alai

but one sunny day it all went awry

she would not be bettered

so got herself unfettered

and a player so distracted did die

For Royal's my favorite sport limerick contest!

Short Sport poem by sidewalker 1| Details |


Now Scott is a man of the air.

For romance and love soars he there.

Through day and through night,

His heart's in full flight.

When grounded, a dove of despair.

*For Royal Trevino's My Favorite Sport contest

Short Sport poem by Katherine Livingstone| Details |

Playing with my life strings


Thats what you do,

Down my viens and

Through my heart.

Your skiing.

Dodging my questions

Colliding with mysery.

You must be.


Are you racing my blood?

Daring my pacience?

Dangerous sport.

Short Sport poem by RALPH TAYLOR| Details |

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 Sport poem by Greg Stanley| Details |

Planet of the Apes - Destiny

Hes finally free,
With his mate riding horseback.
Leaves prints in the sand.

Plans to change his world,
Now dominated by apes,
Do not kill for sport.

He then sees the past,
Fallen Lady Liberty,
Unveils mans future.

Short Sport poem by Douglas Dicketts| Details |

The Pack

The scent of game
A trail is plain
With moon on high to guide us

The chase is short
Its never sport
And food devoured revives us

Through fields and streams
Wolf calls warm breeze
Well run on till morning shall find us

Short Sport poem by Wilma Neels| Details |

'Rugby - chasing the oval ball'

<center>the stands are full, one man kicks the ball
fifteen men pursue, it becomes a maul 
referee blow his whistle
concluding the tussle
a try is scored over goal line he crawl</center>

Contest: My Favorite Sport
9th Place

Short Sport poem by Hannington Mumo| Details |


There must be no playing with years

For this translates only into ceaseless tears, 

I must rise and get recompense for years wasted,

For heavens gave me all the merit

And I gave myself reasons enough to make sport it!

Short Sport poem by Sara Kendrick| Details |

Skating On Frozen Lake






The graceful skater

Circle in an exact line round

On one foot arms outstretched level glide, skirt moves with breeze

Preparing for competition,  winter games, what a sport this woman really loves

Short Sport poem by Andrea Dietrich| Details |

Table Tennis Attraction

Most balls people pitch, roll, or fling.

They kick them or strike them with zing.

But for lazy old  me

I like tirelessly. . . 

to stand, flick my wrist and go ping!

For Royal Trevino's Limerick Contest:

"My Favorite Sport"

Short Sport poem by Joshua Lacey| Details |


Hit that ball really far

Then in my eyes I'm a star!

Try to land inside the bounds

Just how hard that really sounds!

Hope I can make into cup

Before it is time to sup

Just have fun with the sport

Then the game I won't abort!

Short Sport poem by Carolyn Devonshire| Details |

Primate on a Limb

Blissful he appears

Enjoys natures habitat --

Survival instinct

We have missed something

Only man kills for greed, sport --

We are devolving

*Entry for John Freeman's "Natural and Beyond" contest (Haiku first, then Senryu)

Short Sport poem by Michelle Mac Donald| Details |

Royal Crap

King Pin and Needle Queen

Sitting  in their court

The jester tosses coloured eggs

To amuse them with his sport

The king will catch a red one

The queen, she grabs a blue

But when they crack them open

Theyre filled with chicken poo.

Short Sport poem by Joyce Johnson| Details |

Mariner Fan

We're glad the baseball season is over.

For Mariner fans, no fields of clover.

Won half as many as we lost.

Tickets too high at half the cost.

Next season look for a big makeover.

For Linda-Marie's Sport  Limerick contest  won #4

Short Sport poem by C. L. Thornton| Details |

Surfing has its Perils

There is a time when dying is a shock,
like when attacked by a great white shark.
In those few fleeting seconds oh so short
one realizes surfing is not so great a sport.
And what a blessing it would have been
to have stayed home and died uneaten.

Short Sport poem by Paul Curtis| Details |


There was a craze not long ago

A kind of country pursuit

A sport known as cow tipping

Perpetrated by callow youth

Now due to the recession

There is a new craze to report

A rural epidemic, fly tipping

Its popular but not much of a sport

Short Sport poem by Ashraf Ahmad| Details |


Basketball is the greatest sport

You get to dribble up and down the court

A shot here 

A block there

The shotclock goes out 

The crowd starts to shout

Don't be a fool and bring this game to shame

Because basketball is the greatest game

Short Sport poem by Brian Strand| Details |


You know that feeling

you've been here before

something is amiss

but not knowing what

uncertainty reigns-

doubts surface,


I push the door

very slowly-

lights are low,

nothing moves,

music plays-
