Golfing With Republicans

Someone once told me, you can learn a lot 
About people on the golf course.  As I 
Swing into the swirling wind, thoughts of
Last night’s undertow pull me back in.

Are these friends mortal but without regret,
Or are they pretenders of the ©old school?  
As I pull back my club with tempo and will,
In a rush of calm my dark thoughts  are repressed.

No longer can their hard words distract, my
Swinging form is in motion, gaining flow.
I travel through and release the ball with
Every ounce of faith and love that I know.

They watched that ball fly through the swirling air
It carried my unspoken heart and promises there.

    I've read this twice and haven't quite figured it out, James. LOL! Forgive me if I'm a little slow. Is this about 'old dogs that can't learn new tricks'??? Is that a good guess? Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Annalise
