Use your Skill Set - July 23, 2022

my nephew

the disappointed tike who

couldn’t throw it high enough

to reach the rim

then shot 3’s under pressure

now wears a badge

and a game face at gametime

on the street’s courts

the scoreless score

he tries to keep close

cuz bad guys get streaky

hot shooters have a supple wrist

but he’s ready for anything

defense to offense

the quick dribble drive

a layup would be nice

but a stop and pop more likely

anything for a clean shot

though he’ll settle for a miss

if he’s got them

falling back

on their heels
