Alright! This one came out when I was in one of my moods! Had to belt out the anger on someone, it had to be Roddick! This piece of fact posing as fiction is set right before the AO-Semi final this year, between Rod and Fed.
A-ROD’S LOCKER ROOM PRAYER
Heavenly father who hears my prayer,
Keep me safe when I head out there,
I know he’s flighty, I know he’s fun,
But just don’t say I’m ‘the Chosen one’
To be chased like a chicken all over the court
Reborn again and again as his scapegoat
Tonight, O’ Lord grant me a change
of fortune; let there be sweet revenge
As I go out there and sweat under the light
See to it that he’s fully polite
That he does not pillage and tear my game
1 win to 12 losses’ already a shame
I’m high on confidence after Kooyong
Full of belief that I am on a song,
My record against him is hardly amusing
So, put an end to this constant abusing.
Tonight, I’ll send this message across
This AO semi-final’s my gain, his loss!
Let me take him down in three straight sets
And see the end of these All-American protests
About my vulnerability with him, they’ve raised a storm
Lord, I desperately need to get back in form
To save myself from being the Fed-Duck
All I need is some luck and more luck!
All of a sudden, I feel this relief
Like magic potion, I’m full of belief
With racquet and skills, I’ll do the talking
6-4, 6-0, 6-2...I’ll send him walking
And rid myself of that horrible habit
Of always ending up as Roger’s Rabbit!
That night, Roddick went into the court, full of confidence. Rest is history.
Anybody else who wants to pitch in a few lines can add insult to injury, no offence to A-Rod Fans!
