Break point

I don’t like playing games
Can’t stand the competition
Going one against the other
Doesn’t quite fit in with

My idea of fun
Or having a good time
I’d much rather have comrades
Keep gaming second mind

I like the friendship that’s formed
while playing on the c🎾urt
Forget the letting, the netting
And all that other sort

Of slamming,
deuce handing
Racket slicing
Point dicing

I got Love for the game
But not its point making
I’d rather add vantage
To the hands I’ll be shaking
