A Better Putter

A Better Putter

I have a naughty iron that is a nine
Which some say has become benign;
My balls seem to be slow as molasses
So I had to take a couple of classes.

From whole, entire course I got cut
Because I never learned how to putt,
And you should see the terrible scar
When they beat me for not making par.

My golf game suffered a major mishap
Ball ended up being in a soft, sand trap;
Then there was a complete catastrophe
Had hit ball hard from tee into a tree.

To avoid all of the trash and clutter
I then tried to buy a better putter
On course my dead corpse does remain;
All those terrible drives drove them insane.

    Jim, Being a "golfer," I enjoyed this poem a lot. It is very funny and captures the game to a tee.

    This supposedly is my best one so they say with second being about death of Robin Williams. I ma just like you. House is covered with notes of things to write poems about. I am 73 and have been writing poems for 60 years, married for 49 with a 43 year old son and four grandsons. Can you believe it and they want me to start taking courses about how to write poetry. Wrong!!! jthorn5656@gmail.com
