Running, gunning, and gunning, and running,

basketball--thirty-plus years ago.

Still brings a shame to me,

don't you know?


A stupid parks and rec game that no one remembers but me,

probably, I was having an off night,

shooting-wise, but see,


I got it in my head to keep hoisting away.

And, after miss after miss,

the other team decided I was shit,

that I was touched by the gunner's kiss.


And so they fouled on purpose,

to put me on the line.

I could still shoot free-throws okay,

so we took the points, just fine.


But I was so hard-headed,

that I couldn't see, in the moment,

I was making a dick out of myself,

that I becoming that dreaded


word, a gunner, and they were laughing at me.

I was a laughing stock.

I should have just shut myself down,

instead of being mocked!
