The Tennis Player
On a lucky day I found a Jeanie in a bottle
Out he came thankful and free granting me three wishes
My first wish is to have a decent backhand – that is really all I need!
Too many times I missed such easy shots. It’s about time I got a backhand!
The Jeanie was stunned - what about fame, fortune and the pleasures of the flesh? !
I am a tennis player and this is my first wish!
My second wish is to have a killer serve!
Players will fear it as it flies and swerves!
A killer serve it is! The Jeanie sighed
And let me guess your third wish is the strongest forehand in the world!
Far from it, give a decent backhand and a killer serve to my opponents
For what is a game without a challenge!
