a SWISS TENNIS PIRATE scourges all
[ROGER FEDERER wins his fourth consecutive
UNITED STATES OPEN TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP
9-September, 2007]

say the names slowly with emphasis
Laver, Emerson. Borg, Sampras, and now
the Swiss pirate outfitted in couture tennis black
black headband, black wristbands, even black socks
FEDERER – FEDERER – FEDERER
like some long-ago buccaneer out to conquer
(perhaps could he be a character created by RAFAEL SABBATINI in his novels of lusty brigands)
all his opponents crumble and can not match
ROGER the rogue’s battery of blasts
his serve, his forehand, his volleys
this rover forces all to walk the plank
to be just eventual factoids for commentators in the next day’s tennis stories
that scream FEDERER – FEDERER WINS – FEDERER WINS AGAIN
other dispirited players marvel at his control of the game
his backhand sweeps one-handed to crush
tennis balls that land softly just inside lines
to end the sentence; these all too-short stories of sets with just a pose
as his right-arm hangs in the air
to place an exclamation point
from this SWISS swashbuckler
which no continent or tennis port-of-call
is immune to how he mistreats these innocents dressed in tennis white
by the bemused pirate ROGER, ROGER FEDERER
scream his name with the other court greats
FEDERER – FEDERER - FEDERER
an all-time tennis conqueror…
