2005 Wimbledon


~~~

On her tennis racket ride

all those little brown girls,

who don’t know a grass

covered world.  By chance

they sit and see their mirror

image on TV.

 

Long and lean stretching to hit

yellow ball beyond her opponents

reach; she runs and makes each

shot seem so easy.

 

Believe me

it ain’t so easy.

 

Then with the winning point comes

hope to all those little brown girls,

who’ve now gotten a glimpse

into a new world.
