This Sacred Rite: Farewell to the Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas basketball team was eliminated. Led by the prodigious, meteoric Luka Doncic, the Mavs gave the Clippers a true first round scare. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be completed. We honor the fallen and quench their flame with a poem.

This Sacred Rite

Everest was no one’s first mountain
The Moon was no one’s first flight
Atlantic was no one’s first water
We must obey this sacred rite

A marathon is no one’s first race
A title bout is no one’s first fight
A novel is no one’s first sentence
We must obey this sacred rite

A nightmare is no one’s first dream
The morning is no one’s first light
The winter is no one’s first shiver
We must obey this sacred rite

Goodbye, Mav’ricks team…
