Teamwork Poems for Basketball

Sports poetry is becoming more and more popular. Perhaps it's because poems can really stir up a team to achieve great success. I wrote a basketball poem called "It's Called Teamwork". What do you think?

It's Called Teamwork

by Ian Miller

The only way to win the game
is not with talk or hollow fame
No need to bust or overwork
in basketball, it's called teamwork

Play together, the team as one
our strategy has just begun
The pass, the dribble and the shoot
up to the mesh and through the hoop

The cheering crowd, the sweltering court
players adored - in return exhort
The vision, the plan, no kneejerk
in basketball, it's called teamwork
