His "Word's-eye View" of the Game (3)






I will miss him at "nervous time" (when the "boo birds" fly,
And my team "couldn't beat the Sisters of Mercy," because
They're not playing "phi-beta-kappa"), but more so
At "garbage time," when the game is over, long before
The twenty-four second bell chimes.
Yes, I will miss him for as long as I'm alive, or around...
People who love the game of basketball. I will miss him
Calling it--'like no other' in the world, because his
"Word's-eye view" of the game, made me enjoy all the games
"Courtside" in the comfort of a chair or couch--at home.
