Table Tennis Attraction

Most balls people pitch, roll, or fling.
They kick them or strike them with zing.
But for lazy old  me
I like tirelessly
to stand, flick my wrist and go “ping!”

Limerick: Once a Tennis Woman Named Sue Baule

Limerick : Once a Tennis Woman named Sue Baule

Once a Tennis Woman named Sue Baule
Tried to avoid being called : « Screw Ball ! »
So she got her haïr cut
In the shape of a snout
Since at French Open gets dubbed : « Screwed Doll ! »

Dead Man's Shoes

They gave me some nice tennis shoes.
When I came to prison it's true.
    They said you must wear
    and you must not care.
That a dead man has done paid his dues.

Stan Keefeat

Stan Keefeet sure loved his old tennis shoes
They did not love him, was not any news
When kicked off
Everyone coughed
With lots of crying and cussing and boos!

The Nagging Menace

There once lived a boy named Dennis
Who was a nagging menace

He gathered all the balls
That flew over walls

Then threw them at players of tennis!

Out of Bounds

Ilene took an hard look at Dennis
Whose shorts were designed to play tennis
Though he beamed with pride
His balls bounced outside
Perhaps he should try serving Guinness!

All Hands

A seaman  called, "Octopus" Dennis
Was known to the girls  as a menace
A sign from Above
Predicted "True Love"
"But you gotta go out and play tennis!"

All the girls say he is a menace
So desperate for love was Dennis
A psychic's ball
Revealed it all
He could find true Love playing tennis

Psychedelic Tennis Bandana

A young tennis brat from Indiana
Dressed in a psychedelic bandana
   When he put it on
   It glowed bright neon
Lit up the court from here to Montana

    Inspired by Kevin Shaw's

Fake Noose

Watching Serena play tennis
Whilst sipping a pint of Guinness
I heard someone plead
Donald Trump should lead
His Fake News Parade in Venice

There was a young man named Dennis
Who thought he was an ace at tennis
He missed every shot
An ace he was not
He is now a Gondolier in Venice

Had Both Her Knees Replaced

She had both her knees replaced,
And problems we forever faced;
Shoes tennis,
Real menace;
Hard for long shoes to be laced.
