A Golf Poem: The Opposite of Cup


Here is another poem from my new book Opposites in Golf – Portrayed in Poetry as Opposed to Prose.”


What is the opposite of cup?
Glass, an answer that might pop up.
But if the cup is on a green,
Though underground and so unseen,
It could be paired with holes of sand
Where errant balls are want to land.
Then cup’s opposite’s a clunker
Known to golfers as a bunker.

The previous two Posts (if you are on my website you can scroll down to see them) also offer poems from my new book. The book is available on worldwide. I hope you will have time to take a look. Thanks.






Golfers: What’s the Opposite of Chip

Opposites in Golf – Portrayed in Poetry as Opposed to Prose, my new book, includes 32 poems about opposites in golf. It’s available on Amazon for $4.50 and makes a unique present for golfers with a sense of humor.



Chips can be played with an iron club,
They can also be chopped from a tree.
There are lots of chips in Las Vegas
That are counted most carefully.

Chips are produced when plates are dropped,
Others by Frito Lay.
And someone once suggested that –
We let them fall where they may.

 When just off a green on a golf course,
It’s clear which chip is which.
It’s opposite is clear as well –
It has got to be a pitch!
