Dr. Seuss at the Berkshire County Basketball Tournament

by gillis

One shot
Two shot
Missed shot
True shot.

Parents cheer
While some jeer
Whistles blow
Players go.

Dribble up
Dribble down
Pass the ball
All around.

To the hoop
To the hoop
To the orange hoop.

Bounce bounce bounce
And back again
Each side works
To get the win.

Parents cannot
Separate
Their egos from their
Players’ fate.

Shouts lead to
Technical fouls
Threats emerge
Refs howl.

Game after game
Game after game
Uniforms change
Story’s the same.

Winning team gets
A trophy
Losers try not
To be mopey.

Another weekend
In the gym
Concerned with balls
And the orange rim.
