Carthage In A Day: Farewell to the Oklahoma City Thunder

The Oklahoma City basketball team was eliminated today. They began the season with a near-zero chance of making the playoffs. They came one win away from making the second round. We salute the fallen, quench their flame, and send them off with a poem.

Carthage In A Day

We wrote a doctrine in the sand
Methods swaying love’s command
No one thought us foolish
‘Til the sea swallowed the land

We offered up our flesh and blood
Fortune’s penance understood
No one thought us zealous
‘Til the flames devour’d the wood

We tamed the stars to new array
Tides and quakes that we allay
No one thought us haughty
‘Til we fell like Carthage in a day

Goodbye Thunder team…
