The poem is below.



Bowling can be fun
But – ball in
Ball point reaches

12 strikes – perfect
No strikes – dirty,
rotten shame
Ha, ha, aint this

Have another beer
When you can see
twenty pins
Bowling can be fun

My wife has beat me
She only weighs
Bowled her weight
plus ten

I used to bowl and found it to be fun - so I like your ode. Shabbat is the Jewish Sabbath - it runs from sundown on Friday night to Saturday night. Thanks for your kind words! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
