A Poem by DCMS Student Joniquer Munnings

December 1, 2010

Sports

by Joniquer Munnings, Grade 9

I was raised by softball

strike one

Make you wanna throw the bat down

strike two

Tell the 3rd ball to come out of the park

kinda sports.

I was raised by basketball

teammates pass the ball to you

you miss

get the rebound hit a 3 pointer

“Wow Wow!”

that’s the kind of sports.

I was raised by track

running around 3 ½ times

tired, sweat draining down my face

come to the finish line in second

going home with a silver medal

“yaa” that’s the kind of sport.

I was raised by sports

and the person who made me accomplish all these sports

that Mr. Choquette kinda sports.
