I am a poet / and didn’t even know’it.

Fed’s win had me so inspi’ed,

Tears of joy I almost cried.

Dootsie’s floating on cloud nine,

Her feelings can’t fit in one line.

So into poetry did she foray

Who knew rhymes could be her forte? 

She watched as Roger let out a roar,

And found that mojo he’s had before,

Forehands, backhands, drop-shots and serves

Earned him the great victory he deserves.

Never did he think he was going to lose

He had confidence, worthy of his platform shoes! 

Rafael should now go home and rest

For Roland Garros is hardly a test.

In Paris the guy is still invincible 

When fit, his tennis is inimitable.

So do not worry, my Rafatard reader,

Clay Monster is still the ultimate leader. 

As for Nole, he didn’t do so bad, 

To Nadal he lost only by a tad.

His game is no longer such a mess

In fact it’s gained him much success

What a clay season the Serb has had,

Surely a good sign, chin up lad! 

Beyond Paris things will get interesting

The Top Four show’s never been more intriguing

So buckle your seat-belts, and rest your eyes

You never know what in 09 still lies.

But on this ride remember 3 things to keep,

Your faith, your blog and your beauty sleep!

    Wow you know it kills me to say this, but that is some awesome poetry! :O I think I have just a smidgeon of newfound respect for you! Maybe… 😛

    *takes a bow* Thanks Blue and Slicey for your lovely comments. Dootsie = the next WB Yeats.

    Slicey, what do you mean a “smidgeon of newfound respect”? You mean I wasn’t your idol before this?
