Silly white ball

Silly small hole

Warm my heart

Achieve my goal

Wind me up tighter for

The very next hole

What a frustrating time

Was had by all

Hacking and following

That silly white ball

To those who say

You’d be better off in bed

I say nonsense

You’d be better off dead

And once it’s got you

This silly little game

You’ll have partners and courses

To cast your blame

But you know better

Surely you do

You know the only thing

Between you and that hole

Is you.
