I did not make this headline up
Surprisingly, I can't even find an OT post of this in the MGoBoard history, but what better day to acknowledge the academic pursuits of CJ Leslie than the day we play NC State. I don't really think this needs much of an introduction but here goes: CJ Leslie, NC State's forward and the main reason for their lofty preseason ranking, took a freshman poetry course last year and the assignment below is the result.
Bonus points for use of double entendre, even if it is...like...the easiest and most obvious one to use.

She Finally Came
she was hesitant…
about the lack of time we spent.
she said, "i barely know you,
i'm kinda sick."
… only as friends."
i waited it out,
and tried it again.
this time only to find out
that we had work til 10!
where did I go wrong?
just tryna find a beneficial friend…
i'm starting to think these excuses
the next time she cancelled,
it was for an emergency.
this chick is really avoiding me…
then i got a text.
she finally came.
and over, and over, and over….
