CC - Puppies of the Caribbean


There was a tennis tournament being held at our hotel.
Lot's of sour-faced children and anxious parents.

Puppies of the Caribbean

Obnoxious, snotty little brats,
Taking in their coach’s story;
They work the minor circuits
And dream of tennis glory.

They’re told that they can ‘do it’,
They’re told that they’re the cream,
Then dragged around the traps
To live their parent’s dream.

Not mixing with us common folk,
They are sullen and seldom talk.
They seem a little puzzled
We don’t worship where they walk.

I’m sure they have the backhand
I’m sure they have the serve,
I hope the stuck up little darlings
Get all that they deserve.

  1. Poor kids..sometimes parents want their kids to live their dreams..not knowing that their kids have totally different interest.

  2. Just what's needed...more elitist snobs.

  3. It's funny how there's a generation of children being told they "got it" - making them even more insufferable when they finally figure out they not only do they not have it, they never even had a shot at it.

  4. There seems to be a lot of children like that now, they want and expect everything and some are given everything that they want ... I think the parents are to blame for a lot of their behaviour, as it has already been said here they want to live their dreams through their children, and if they are given everything it takes away their incentive to work for anything or appreciate it. xoxo ♡


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
