Kids Basketball Game In 160-Fishy No More

The basketball game’s on,

Life’s guidance gone,

Get drowned.


Whistles blow,

A free throw,

Faces glow.


Steal, dribble, score,

Fishy no more,

Win by 4.

  1. The coach was pacing the sideline, will we have time to score nine?
    In order to get all the players in, we have to be leading by ten,
    The other team just got another score, now we lead by only four,
    Parents will be mad if I don’t play their kid, while I’m here flipping my lid,
    They’re never happy whatever I choose,
    But I’ll be very unpopular if we lose, lose, lose.

  5. I playe organized basketball as a kid. We all took it so seriously. Now I think of how innocent we were. Really nice poem. Brought me back to when I was a boy.

  7. Been a while since I read a sweet offering like this, so simple to forget how innocent a game can be in the hustle and bustle of the “real world”. Great offering, thanks for sharing Jingle!
