A Basketball (Tercet)


Yes, everyone must have a basketball.
It's the gift that must be given to all,
Because with it, everyone can have a ball.

You can bump it to touch the sky;
Something all want to do before they die.
Best of all, it is very easy to dry.

You can use just one sheet of bounty;
Water runs off it like pretty girls run from me;
By the way, that is something you ought to see!

Just pump it and you will have a best friend,
A classy one, if you are willing to spend;
You can get a warranty that does not end.

Spalding is the brand used by the NBA,
It makes for one hell of a play,
But you do not have to take what I say.

Try it for yourself and you will see,
A basketball is a friend without animosity.
Get one! If I were you, I would do so quickly.

    Magnifique'
    Send this great ADV writ to Spalding and possibly have them charity gift
    the many needy kids with dreams of NBA
    Beautifully and spiritually expressed.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
