Our coach explained his style of play
Of basketball to us this way:

"With box-and-one and trapping press
And low post screens we'll have success.
The give-and-go will stretch the floor,
And backdoor cuts from picks will score.
Our weave will freeze their match up zone,
And, Kevin, put away your phone."

And later as in chair I lay,
My dentist searched for tooth decay:

"Extractions are required, my boy,
But nitrous oxide you'll enjoy.
Occlusions and abrasion wear
We'll fix with orthodontic care.
Of gingivitis, there's no sign,
And EMG's are looking fine."

Except for phone, I cannot say
I understood a word today.


*All of these are real words used in basketball and dentistry.
