Why Should I Even Care

Who wins at the tennis why should I even care
When in their huge winnings I won't be one to share
Yet some people travel far to watch their favourite players play
And just for that privilege most of their hard earned savings pay
The flags of many Nations one sees in the crowd
Suppose 'tis not hard to make some people feel proud,
Just to watch their compatriot chase and hit a tennis ball
I do find it hard to make sense of it all
But then I'm a cynic why pay heed to me
In feats of sporting greatness the greatness I cannot see
Yet the sports fans I envy for their passion and energy
As they urge on their idols on to victory
The names of their heroes and heroines they chant and they sing
But then one might say they are doing their own thing.
