The Amar’e Stoudemire era officially ended in New York today. Yeah, we all know the Knicks are truly terrible, and it appears Amar’e will end up with a contender, but Amar’e took the time to pen a thank you poem to the good citizens of New York. He even posted it in an Instagram caption, so you know it took some time and dedication. Classy move. When I leave an employer, I usually roll out firing the double bird while reciting Johnny Paycheck in my head.
From the Instagram caption:
Poem by: Amar’e Stoudemire
NY NY what a beautiful city
A place where you can hang out with Anna, JayZ & Diddy
Its a place absent of excuses and patience
If your smart, you can meet leaders of every nation
NY NY big city of dreams
Everything in NY isnt always what it seems
In the land where the jungle is concrete
The money flows Dow Jones and Wall Street
Home of #STATcity and the #KnickstapeOrginator,
Shalom to all my fans, Salute to all my haters.
Peace and Love
Amar’e Carsares Stoudemire Sr.
Personally, I’d read more poetry if it saluted haters..
