The Last One Picked for Basketball

Wisdom is always an overmatch for strength.

~Phil Jackson

The last one picked for basketball

Is never on the court.

He’s way too weak and clumsy

And he’s certainly too short.

His arms are full of notebooks

And his head’s too full of knowledge.

But the last one picked for basketball

Might be the first picked for college.
