Funeral Poems For Basketball Players: " Shooting Stars"

 

 

 

SHOOTING STARS

 

The ball in the coffin

Rather gave the game away

As a diehard basketball player

Determined to play on in future days

 

With a leap of faith, you've a spring in your step

Out on a cosmic court

Slam dunks and buzzer beaters

Welcome a friend of the galactic sport

 

Basketball players end their last mortal game

With their longest fadeaway

Shooting for the hoops of Saturn

In their last ever earthly play
