The ball bounces in the court,
The clock winding down as we scurry back and forth.
I look to the ball handler, I analyze his eyes,
He passes to me this is my moment, as the time flies.
The ball leaves his grip, it cuts through the air
Only to land between me and my teammate, as I push him on the floor.
Yes! I grip the ball! No time left! Must react!
I fling the ball to the rim, that’s it no turning back.
The crowd loses its voice, they all stop and stare,
At the ball as it soars through the air.
EHHHHH! The buzzer sounds as the ball hits the exit sign,
The crowd heaves a heavy groan, anger and disappointment all in their minds
