Oh Rafa, You Are So Great
A few weeks ago, I composed a poem dedicated to Rafael Nadal, and posted it on here. It was intended to reflect his sheer brilliance and the total adoration and respect which the majority of genuine tennis fans have for him. Sadly, a small ignorant minority of Nadal haters hijacked the thread and started insulting him, and the thread was closed.
Now that he has once again demonstrated his brilliance, winning Roland Garros without losing a set, and rightfully regained the World No. 1 ranking, I would like to repost my verse. Please only post in this thread if you have something positive to say, or want to contribute more lines in praise of the great Spaniard.
Oh Rafa, you are so great
To see you play, I cannot wait.
The heart of a lion, the courage of a bear
But in every match, you always play fair.
No-one can match your power and strength
Brilliant forehand, consistent length
As if such talent wasn’t enough
You always stay focused and mentally tough.
Speed and spin, touch and flair
Not to mention, amazing hair
Enormous biceps, incredible pecs
To admire your body is better than sex
With a flex of the elbow, a flick of the wrist
You win the point, then pump your fist
Your opponents cower, as you shout ‘SI!’
While in their pants, they probably wee
Your passing shots never cease to amaze.
Your fire and passion leave one in a daze
Forget Roger, Novak and Murray
You beat them all, as if in a hurry
To ignore your achievements would be a crime
You are the greatest of all time
Those who deny it, haven’t got a clue
Oh Rafa Nadal, WE ALL LOVE YOU.
