An Ode to Tiger Woods

The Tiger Woods (from Songs of Experience)
           with apologies to William Blake

Tiger Woods burning bright
With support of Nike's might
What immortal had or eye
Could frame thy fearful immortality?

How many women did you see?
Was it ten? Was it three?
Were they blond or were they red?
Did they "sleep" in Elin's bed?

And did you think the media bliss
would cease at all because of this?
Hard to believe their love would end,
Except of course for ESPN.

What of Kalika? What of Holly?
Was it worth the night of jolly?
How about Buick? How about Gillette?
A new definition of "the best a man can get"?

Would your father have approved?
Or be angered by your move?
What of the children that you sired?
With what scars will they be mired?

Tiger Woods burning bright
with support of Nike's might
What immortal hand or eye
Dare question thy morality?

Very clever! Your own? I personally think he probably went off the rails when his dad died. But then again, he is just a man, and I'm sure more than one of those women threw herself at him. Probably very profitable to be Tiger's bit on the side.

Yes this is my very own creation. Thanks to Blake for the rhyming scheme. I have a little Weird Al Yankovic in me.
