Cheer Up, Hawks Fans: Here's a Poem by a 10-year-old about Dikembe Mutombo

My friend sent me this poem his younger brother wrote back in the '90s at the age of ten:

Dikembe Mutombo is
such a cool guy
He can easily dunk the ball
And jump really high

At rebounds he is better
than anyone else in the NBA
He is my favorite basketball player
That plays the game today

Dikembe Mutombo is the
Guy I want to meet
He is the one guy in a game
No other man can beat

At 7’2" he is a guy that’s
really tall
He’s the best dunker in the
Game of basketball
If you watch him play
you’ll sit and stare
‘Cause Denver’s 55 is an
awesome player

Don't you feel a little better now?
