Nineteen thirty eight, born to a family, this
West Virginia boy,
Jerry West would one day be one of the greatest ever.
His father was a coal mine worker, abuse and pain,
A shotgun under his bed, in fear that he may be hurt
East bank high school, West Virginia university,
Zeke from Cabin Creek,
Nicknamed Mr. Clutch, famous buzzer beating, sixty
Game three of the nineteen seventy NBA finals against
Fourteen straight all star appearances for this great
The NBA logo, his silhouette, "Mr. outside" his great
Purple gold uniform worn by a man, down the floor,
Game after game,
A nineteen seventy two thirty three game win streak
And a ring,
Many records set from college to the pros, a hall of
Fame player, Jerry West.
Someone, from such a humble beginning, achieving his own, greatest, dreams, because of how hard he’d worked, towars his own, goals.
He overcame so much, I bought a 1972 picture of him in a Laker uniform.
