Free throw Clerihew

 Shaquille  O'Neal
plays basketball with zeal
can dunk without leaving the ground
but his free throws hardly  go down

    So is that true about his free throws? I hardly follow sports, but this seems like a cool one for Shaquille!! It was good I found a recent one of yours to comment to. I think I have read all your other poems for this month and last!

    His younger sister went to HS with my daughter while he played with the Magic. So long ago. Good entry for the contest.

    Hello Joseph, your poem is very fine.... I like how some feet never leave the ground when it comes to basket ball... Your short form is excellent... Me and my sister ran a couple of these contest a couple of months ago. i love this form... good luck in the contest..pd
