    Standin' almost six foot seven
    Harold could dip and swerve.
    No one ever blocked the lane,
    because nobody had the nerve.

    No one could stay with Harold
    when he went strong to the hoop.
    My man Harold was one of a kind,
    they could never make a 'dupe.

    Harold was a playin' fool
    until his butt slap stayed too long
    that's when I realized
    he was singing a different song.

    I was amazed at how cool I was,
    I didn't go crazy and I didn't shout,
    but I made one thing perfectly clear
    that "that" wasn't what I'm about.

    I called a break, just a brief timeout
    warned Harold about illegal use of hands
    making it clear that if it happened again
    that I'd drop him where he stands.

    We still hit the asphalt courts together,
    Harold is still my main man above all else
    but now when we're playing ball
    Harold keeps his hands to himself.



    Come check my new column "Born to be Wild?" talking about homosexuality and how people feel about it.

    Write or Die!

    That is my question. I either write or I am dead, just walking around looking for a hole to fall in so someone can throw some dirt on me. Thanks for reading me. I really do appreciate it. I try to read everyone at least once a week so that I can draw inspiration and knowledge for myself. Believe, it helps as there are some supremely talented writers on this page.

    Peace

    Ra

    This one surprised me, but it flowed genuinely, and I like the fact that it was posed in a "real" fashion. Flow on.
