Requiem for the Shore: Farewell to the Houston Rockets

The Houston basketball team was eliminated today. They were victims of their own design, struggling to overcome their lack of size. When the shots wouldn’t fall, they ultimately did, to the mighty Lakers. We put out their flame with a poem.

Requiem for the Shore

A grain of sand can’t stop the tide
All alone among itself
Despite its foolish pride

A grain of sand can’t quell the sea
Though far from effervescent
it can see the strength in ‘we’

A grain of sand is not the shore
even if it builds an army
it always needs one more

A grain of sand can’t change its fate
a million times it stands in vain
its foe is far too great

Goodbye, Rockets team…
