Fed-Up Cup

 

Fed-Up Cup (Randyjw; February 12, 2017)

 

Well, once again,

I’m getting ready to serve

my double-handed

cross-court

killer backhand

just a fingers’ span

over the net

against those with the nerve

to sing the Nazi anthem

ever again

or even here

hard to believe

in this land

 

Well,

I’m here to win this set

nor could I even stop

just yet

for underspinning drops

and lobs and faults

they’ll call a let

 

I just don’t get…

 

I’m not interested in deuce

gonna slam it back to you

because I know the biased truths

which are used to exclude the Jews

 

You can’t give me the halt

when you ump to make that call

singing Deutschland Uber Alles

On that score, I’ll roar, Love: All

 

🎾
