Basketball

Swish! Swoosh! Oh that lovely sound,
The ball is bouncy, orange and round.
















I’ve played the game since I was five,
Believe it or not I’m still alive.

Basketball is really fun,
Although you do have to run.

In the game you can dribble, pass, or shoot,
Or even shout “HOOT, HOOT.”





When you score the crowd goes wild,
Sometimes it sounds like a screaming child.

You don’t have to run as fast as a train,
But you have to work hard and use your brain.

You have to be ready,
But just remain steady.

Overall, it’s my favorite sport to play,
And if I could I would play it all day.
