Summer at Wimbledon by Jan Jack


 It’s Wimbledon again, I’m feeling anxious, very fraught,

The pressure’s on, it always is, right here on Centre Court,

The linesman has a guide dog and the umpire’s ninety three,

My opponent’s using gamesmanship; he's really bothering me,

He queries almost everything; we’re stuck again at deuce,

The umpire is agreeing!  What’s all this? The man’s obtuse,

There have been some daft decisions, and some very dodgy calls,

If he carries on, it won’t be me who needs some brand new balls,

And now it’s getting cloudy, yes, I thought so, here’s, the rain,

It seems that we’ll be heading to the changing rooms again, 

I’m thinking things can’t get much worse and then, to my chagrin, 

As we start to leave the Court, oh no, Cliff Richard starts to sing..
