Silver At It Again

It was a large court
We had left our home for fun sought
Everyone loved basketball
It was the reason we got Silver a leather ball.

It was before the game started
Like many others
At the court we stared
Silver laid on my laps like floated feathers

The teams were set and the whistle blown
Silver sat upright
Her whiskers shown
She was ready for her utmost delight

My hubby laughed and cheered away
He too had longed for this day
Suddenly, Silver leaped for she had her way
Heading for the ball no one would sway

She had long sighted the bouncing ball
It was like the one we had bought for her
I wanted to go after her
But Silver could lead me to a fall

She ran into the court
The noise in the court rose wildly
The players tried to chase her off
But Smart Silver dodged them smartly

She had interrupted the game
And drawn attention to my unwanted fame
I shouted her name
And my husband did the same

At the center she stood
Waiting to hold the ball for she could
A player handed her ball
She gazed at him for she was short and he was tall

She bounced the ball severally
And headed back to us
The crowd cheered happily
As she made her way up
