It isn’t a picnic, this wasteland of Summer hoops
Living on past moments and video loops
Opening every article and cast
Verifying rumors, romanticizing the past
Every nugget of Denver Nuggets news
Then picked to the bone by those claiming their clues
How long ‘til they play? Who’s going to start?
Each morsel gets covered ‘til they’re each pulled apart
Did they get another power forward? We don’t need any more!
Even a yellow cab service doesn’t have this many fours
Nuggets Nation waits breathless for the games to begin
Volunteering opinions on losses and wins
Excellent discussions then ensue on the boards
Revealing, appealing, disagreements, and accords
Not much left to talk about, so many have spoken
Understandable given so little news broken
Gives a writer a headache, just scrabbling an idea
Growling and gurgling in onomatopoeia
Everyone’s got an opinion, was this poetry caustic?
Take a moment to answer, after you look up “acrostic”
