The Straight Truth

“The Straight Truth” is straight forward. In simple words and exceedingly short lines, this rhyme of woe narrowly defines the duffer’s usual game. It is best read on a winter’s day, but only with reference to previous golfing adventures. Next season things will be different!

THE STRAIGHT TRUTH
(A Duffer’s Lament)

Off I
go
hopes too
high

Tee the
ball
let it
fly

Where it
lands
one of the
keys

In the
grass
not in the
trees

Good starts
help
to calm the
mind

Bad starts
cause
a menal
bind

Hybrids
now
crowd the
bag

Still fairway
shots
too often
lag

Sometimes
chips
turn out
fine

Then easy
putts
avoid the
line

Eighteen
holes
a challenge
vast

Flaws and
failings
show up
fast

Numbers
high
across the
card

Proof once
more
that golf is
hard.
