Basketball Poem

Invented in the 1890's A sport I played as a youth Now I've got the Brooklyn Nets on T.V. Can one be a poet and a sports fan? The answer of course is yes! There have been many terrific poems written about athletes City dreams are hoop dreams CITY DREAMS ARE HOOP DREAMS Maybe at 63 I can still dribble and make a basket Die on the basketball court! Not a bad way to go!
