March Madness Poem

  As a basketball coach and a basketball fan,  the NCAA basketball tournament, also known as March Madness, is my favorite time of the year.  From the conference tournaments until the singing of “One Shining Moment,” the month of  March is the culmination of a great college basketball season.

A few years ago, I wrote a poem to try to capture both the highs and the lows of this great tournament.  For every fan of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, I am taking a step away from writing books to  share with your my poem.


The Madness of March

The Madness is raging
The March is on
To see who’ll be victorious
And who will be gone

One by one they will fall
As they all face their fate
And new legends emerge
With heroics so late

The mighty will fall
Yet the strong will survive
And then in the end
Only one’s left alive

The tears will be flowing
Both from joy and from pain
As for three weeks they battle
To see who will reign.

One by one they will fall
As only a few will advance
But all will be fighting
In the Big Dance

For some it’s good-bye
Yet new stars will emerge
As some sing for joy
And some sing their dirge

The Madness captures them all
As they March from shore to shore
All fighting with the common goal
Of playing in the Final Four

They each come together
Uniting their team
Surviving and advancing
Chasing their dream

Round after round they will fight
With all the strength they can muster
Some win as expected
And some are bracket busters

In the end only one team will stand
United together in line
Cutting down the nets
In their one moment to shine
