My opponent stares at me
But I don’t shake, twitch, or falter
I can see right through his pompous persona
He serves the ball

But I don’t shake, twitch, or falter
I return the ball with more power and spin
He serves the ball
With a quick swing, it careens back over the next

I return the ball with more power and spin
Light green tufts of fuzz fly as it spirals into the clay ground
With a quick swing, it careens back over the net
My points begin to add up, and I now serve

Light green tufts of fuzz fly as it spirals into the clay ground
Another lunge from my opponent, but to no avail
My points begin to add up, and I now serve
I see my aggressor recoil in horror at the sheer force behind the ball

Another lunge from my opponent, but to no avail
I can see right through him pompous persona
I see my aggressor recoil in horror at the sheer force behind the ball
My opponent stares at me
