The U.S. Open at Chambers Bay

(Artwork by
So far, this year's U.S. Open's not a pretty sight;
Putting surfaces look like they're suffering from blight.
Course was once a sand and gravel pit and it still shows
There, but for one Douglas fir and weeds, where nothing grows.

So, despite the lovely views they have of Puget Sound,
I hope - next year - that a better venue can be found...
One where trains don't rumble by it 60 times a day,
One where fairways aren't brown and putting greens aren't gray.

Wishing those participating all the best of luck.
May the sports gods grant that all your golf balls be well struck,
That they not find pot-hole bunkers which require stairs.
But I wouldn't count on it...  The sports gods don't do prayers.
