A Poem In A Poem

Below is a poem I wrote on December 13, 2015. This poem is a first for me because it features a poem inside a poem.
The poem and the poem inside of a poem pay tribute to the cross-over dribble of Tim Hardaway. He perfected the move while a college basketball player at UTEP. His 2-step move featured a hitch which would leave the defender a pile of goo upon the basketball court.

The UTEP 2-Step of Tim Hardaway

        Before Alley Iverson
        ever executed
        his jazz maestro-level
        cross-over-dribble
        in the NBA
        was
        the UTEP 2-Step
        of Tim Hardaway

        Magic Johnson
        after getting annihilated
        by the rookie's
                UTEP 2-Step said,
                "There is a new
                sheriff in town
                and his name is
                Tim Hardaway.
                That cross-over this kills!"

                poem within a poem
                The UTEP 2-Step

                        The hitch
                        a bitch
                        to defend.
                        To fans
                        it did please,
                        The Great Magic Johnson
                        Brought to his knees.

                        C.W. Pruitt II
