WLRN in Miami, a fine and upstanding NPR member station, is running a poetry contest of sorts. Six lines celebrating the arrival of LeBron James in Miami.

My personal favorite:

A self-centered player named James
Was a slam-dunk to win all the games.
Boy, Cleveland was mad
When the Heat signed the lad.
Now the Cavs call LeBron nasty names.

They're going to announce the winner on the day of the Heat opener, October 26th.
