The Basketball
The basketball swished
As the ball dived right
It was a great shot, this much
is true
The buzzer let out it’s nasally
The end of the quarter, the
end of the half

‘Players get ready’, their
interest was sparked

court became scuffed
The brooms cleaned and
polished, and made it all
The backboard was aching,
as the shots kept on coming
Despite its best efforts, the
ball kept on drumming
We had so much fun, the
basket was tired
And all of the players were
hot and perspired
