Short Poems

1. “Airball”
I shoot with so much grace
But sometimes miss the target place
The ball soars high above
And lands with a resounding thud

2. “Foul Play”
I played a little rough
And got caught in the act, that’s tough
I tried to dodge the ref’s call
But ended up with a free throw for all

3. “Tall Tales”
You don’t need to be a giant
To be the best basketball client
Height is just one advantage
Skill and strategy can do the damage

4. “Slam Dunk”
I can hear the crowd roar
As I leap up and score
The ball goes through the hoop
And I feel like such a hoopla troupe!

Medium Poems

The Baller’s Dilemma

I dribble, I shoot,
I cross over, I boot,
But no matter what I do,
The ball just won’t go through.

I try my best to score,
But my opponents always want more,
They block my shots with ease,
And taunt me with their please.

But I won’t give up so soon,
I’ll keep working on my swoon,
Till I get that sweet, sweet score,
And the crowd will cheer for more.

So watch out, all you naysayers,
I’ll be back with better layers,
And when I sink that winning shot,
You’ll all be eating your rancid rot.

The Court Jester

I’m the court jester, the clown of the game,
I’ll make you laugh, I’ll make you maim,
I’ll trip and fall, I’ll stumble and fail,
But you’ll be entertained, without fail.

I’ll dribble with my nose,
I’ll block shots with my toes,
I’ll spin and dance and prance,
In a silly, ridiculous stance.

But don’t be fooled by my antics,
I’m more than just a funny romantic,
I’ve got moves you’ve never seen before,
And I’ll leave you lying on the floor.

So let me be the jokester for a while,
I’ll make you laugh and crack a smile,
And when the game is on the line,
I’ll be the one to bring the sublime.

Long Poems

The Baller’s Blues

I lace up my sneakers and hit the court,
Ready to play, ready to report.
My moves are slick, my shots are clean,
I’m the best baller the world has seen.

But sometimes things just don’t go right,
The rim seems smaller, the ball takes flight.
I miss a shot, I lose the ball,
My teammates grumble, I feel small.

I start to dribble, then I trip,
I fall flat on my face, what a slip!
My pride is wounded, my ego bruised,
I feel like a clown, so silly and confused.

But then I remember, it’s just a game,
It’s not about the glory or the fame.
It’s about the love of the sport,
And the fun that we all can exhort.

So I get back up, I shake it off,
I’m determined to keep playing hard.
I joke around, I make people laugh,
I’m not just a baller, I’m a fun-loving calf.

And at the end of the day, when all is said and done,
I’m happy to be part of this baller’s fun.
I may not always win, I may not always shine,
But I’ll always love basketball, it’s the game that’s mine.

Slam Dunk Rhyme

The game of basketball is quite a sight,
With players dribbling left and right,
Jump shots flying through the air,
It’s enough to make anyone stare.

But what’s even better than the game,
Are the funny poems that we can claim,
So get ready for some laughs galore,
As we dunk some rhymes and score.

First up is a poem about a giant,
Who loved to play basketball defiant,
But every time he took a shot,
The ball would bounce off his towering knot.

Next is a poem about a clumsy fellow,
Who always tripped and lost his yellow,
But in the game he found his grace,
And now he wears a smile on his face.

Then there’s the player who couldn’t pass,
He always seemed to throw the ball too fast,
But with practice and some patience too,
He learned to pass like the pros do.

And don’t forget the player with the big feet,
Who found it hard to keep on his feet,
But once he learned to use his size,
He became a force to reckon with, much to the surprise.

Now we come to the end of our game,
With poets and players all the same,
We hope you enjoyed this silly slam,
And found some humor in every jam.

So let’s give a round of applause,
To basketball and all its flaws,
And may we always remember to smile,
As we play and dunk in style.
