Shooter and the Ball


Ball, why don’t you go through hoop?

Every time I miss I yell “Poop!”

You make it so hard for me to win.

If you do score then I will grin.

Oh ball can’t you see the beautiful net.

Oh ball please have no regret.

Just this once, give me a chance.

So that I may do a victory dance.


Being a ball, it’s not fair.

Look at you’ve even got hair.

It hurts me to bounce up and down.

It’s not fun I’d much rather drown.

Can’t you see,

this isn’t for me.

I have no way to speak my opinion

I no longer want to be someone’s minion.

I’d rather be free.

This is just not for me.
