They’re saying that Bloomberg is lacking
In stature, his shortness attacking.
But better short man
Than shortness of plan
For that, we should all send him packing.

Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

His height made him great ’round the basket.
But sadly, poor Wilt blew a gasket.
Dismayed by his death,
We all held our breath –
Would Chamberlain fit in a casket?

I’ll Keep My Distance

I shudder
To think of the heights
And tough climb.


E’en the moon,
A silver sliver,
Seems so small.


But beauty
Is stark, outstanding.
I’m in awe.
