An American Comedy: Farewell to the LA Clippers

The LA basketball team was eliminated today. They took a 3-1 lead on the Denver Nuggets, only to crumble and make it 50 years without a conference finals appearance. We quench their flame with a poem.

An American Comedy

You thought this was promised
You were chosen by god
You woke up and waited to hear the applause

In the wake of your hubris
does your head hang in shame?
Do you still think the hare’s race will lead you to fame?

You found all the pieces
Thought you had them in place
Now the whole wide world is laughing in your face

You thought this was promised
You were chosen by god
Now it’s obvious you were always a fraud

Goodbye, Clippers team…
