~Basketball~

I forgot about Miss
or rather she'd been nagging at my mind
unknowing, unwittingly
had made such an impression
so that I longed to please her

Being untrained in her sport
e'en so far as disliking it
I would not, could not please her
my heart having been so far removed from it
so I could not enjoy the prospect of playing
As such, I regret being unable to please.
no encouragement will benefit me
and I must stick with my ever favoured sport
else much disgrace might be wrought of my own accord
and I've no wish to see any such sort!
