Basketball Shoes

My basketball sneakers could make me fly
In fourth grade I could jump so high
I wasn't the best on the team
But I was in my dream
With those shoes, I swear I could touch the sky.

Hyperbole is a sports 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?

Steph Curry

Steph Curry is taking hoops to a whole new level,
Say the rabid Oaktown fans as they revel.
The way he throws it in the hole
from downtown off a pick and roll
Makes me wonder if he's signed on with the Devil...

A Basketball Tale

Basketball tip off at grade school game
My biggest lifetime shot at fame
Got the ball and took off
Heard the yells from aloft
Wrong way I went but good my aim

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

Life With Trump I

It's bullies Melania fights
The big one is now in her sights
If Donald should stray
His schlong she will flay
And not even give him last rites

I missed the toilet in the dark,
I'm always deadly as a shark,
I miscalculated -
math is overrated...
think basketball: Shoot with an arc.

Basket Ball

To excel at the game basketball
It helps if you are incredibly tall
Two points you can get
By dropping the ball in the net
Without making much effort at all

A Tail Like a Fish

Too-tall Jackson had a tail like a fish 
But when he swam his gym shoes went squish-squish
   He took up basketball
   That was sure the right call
Happy end to his tale ~ A perfect swish!

Totem -- Odom

A basketball player named Odom
Wants to dribble the balls in his scrotum
   He tries to bounce them
   Hardwood boards renounce them
Odom can't put 'em back ~ has to tote 'em!

Just skipped to the 'loo for a poop

A new basketball player in the gym
Was at once by all dubbed Very Tall Jim.
Give him the ball,
Very bad call,
Dribbling in Jim hit his head on the  rim.

I made the bet on who’d win the game
the Bulls looked great; my team played quite lame
dressed in clown’s clothes
with a red clown nose
the whole office will laugh without shame

Falling Down

Brown leaves,- falling down,
Corrupt governments,- falling down,
No one seems to be right,
Greediness and cruelness  erodes the trust,
In this world, the table falls down
