The Etiquette of Squash - a Poem by Zee Shaan
Squash is my way of life
kindly don't take that as a joke
cuz when someone asks for a let
I humbly offer a stroke...
I never play a carried ball,
always call the double bounce,
the questioning of referees' calls,
such practices I strongly denounce...
When I am ready to serve,
I audibly announce the score,
If there's a dispute in numbers,
in their favor, I opt for more...
No point in throwing ur racquet,
think of it as a part of ur arm,
now imagine if u will in anyway,
ever deliberately bring it any harm?
No gain being abusive verbally,
try & respect your own name,
u will win some & will lose some,
in the end, it's all part of the game...
I try to always get out of the way,
to allow them a direct path,
never happy getting bumped,
hence suffering someone's wrath...
No matter if they're better or worse,
I always enjoy hitting with them all,
because I know I can always outdo myself,
as long as I keep my eyes on the ball...
I can tell u loads about the game,
but I'll leave u with this advice,
always respect ur opponent & the game,
to sum it up: "just try & be nice..."
