final seconds

November 6, 2008
By Tim Bradley, Littleton, CO

heart thumping, clock ticking
making cuts, shoes sticking
move to the top, pass to me
make one move, past him with glee
one more to go, piece of cake
fly right by, he bites on the fake
just me and the hoop, feel like a hero
it bounces out, feels like a zero
i'm not famous, no glory no fame
chin up kid, there's always next game
