I had an early tee time
...I stood upon the box,
Big Bertha at the ready
...In silence, no one talks,
With grunt I take a mighty swing
...The ball I cannot see,
Then I hear the laughter
...As I walk to ladies' tee.
From my bag a fairway wood
...My second stroke I take,
What an idiotic spot
...To put a stupid lake.
With my drop I'm laying four
...Five iron I think I'll use,
As I stand amid the rough
...Another ball I lose,
I gaze upon that dimpled orb
...As now I'm laying six,
In my hands I hold a wedge
...An urge to burn my sticks,
With perfect arc I strike the ball
...To pin in majesty,
I stand and gaze in golfer's awe
...Then damn, I hit a tree.
I hit a wedge upon the green
...I'm only laying eight,
I'm forty feet from flagless cup
...The green does undulate,
With trusty putter in my grasp
...I close my eyes and putt,
I take a peek and see my ball
...Head straight to divot's rut,
Then to my amazement
...The ball curves to the pin,
Disbelief and jubilation
...The cup, the ball drops in.
I turn to my companions
...Say, "Tiger is my name."
This is such an easy sport
...O' God, I love this game.

one night at the airport...Childhood Memories...your countenance...eight short weeks...My One and Only...Music to my Ears...hoarse whispers...just watching tv...Feel the need?...serving wench...Tribute to M.J....take a guess...sink or swim
...stolen hours...the mistress...Perfection...a little girl...Mr. Jones...life is like...insomnia...devotion...07-20-69...craving...
Master...chat?...apart...plain...vice...shameless self promotion

I may laugh at this one for days. Any golfer can relate. Thanks, Tim.

Did I fail to mention this poem is auto-biographical? Balladeer... perhaps I should have titled it Ode to the 18 Handicapper.
thank you all for you comments. I am glad you enjoyed.
