WEBSTER'S
DICTIONARY

.

Young and impressionable was I,  
An enthusiastic
*sole, 
“Why yes,” was my immediate response 

When invited for the exclusive chaunce 
To caddy to each hole.

Little did I know back then that 
I would start to wane, 
Up, down, and around the hills, 
The grass, the sand, the weeds until 
I was ready for a cane.

If I had had the fortitude, 
Had realized the call, 
To tote the bag, to walk the green, 
To champion upon the scene 
In following the ball.

I am eas-i-ly reminded how 
Should I have had the goods, 
If I had only persevered 
I could, by now, have been revered 
As caddy for Tiger Woods.
