BlackOut Poem

 

                Although basketball is hard

       Be prepared for all the fun things you can do

               Come ready to learn the plays

         Dribble with the best effort you have

     Effort makes you better than you think

                  Fun times are good times

 Basketball

         

         Basketball

          Dribbling,passing

          Jumpshot,3-point shot,layup

          Playing summer ball is great

          Sport

 

 Sports

    Dogs 

hark the breaking played!

          

Oh! drat! peeking weaving dog.

           

Panda scolds quickly

Klay

Ambitious,practical,unassuming,witty

He has no spouse or no kids

He loves playing with his dog and playing for the golden state warriors

Who is happy,loving,grateful

Losing a game,Getting hurt,not making it to the nba finals

Won the 2015 NBA championship

Make it to the NBA Championship every year,not get traded

Born in Los Angeles,Lives in Dana point

Old Geezer

I know an old geezer called Sue.

Who would sit in a bag with the flu,

Have  no fear i would say

I'll be home anyway

And i'll watch my dessert till i'm blue

We're a married;my new name is

 

Leah Thompson

 

 

The icy road.

 

I slip.

 

And fall.
