To No One: Farewell to the Denver Nuggets

The Denver basketball team was eliminated today. They fell into yet another 3-1 deficit but ultimately succumbed to their fate. We honor their incredible run and finally quench their playoff flame with a poem.

To No One

In the amber of this moment
Oh, great maven of the knife edge
Who made known contempt for death
Who made end to honored precedent

Though heaven’s wheel still spins
Drink well in your divine interlude
Give honor to the mem’ries you have earned
Pledge you won’t cast them aside

There is no shame in what befalls you
There are but heroes in your ranks
You need not wallow in your defeat
My friends, you bow to no one

Goodbye, Nuggets team…
