To duck and weave

Ah! a vicious, artless short ball
I duck under it, at times weave away
I let it go, but I watch it all the way— A desperate bowler’s hurled aggravation, limps into the keeper’s hand. All the aggression as harmless as the needless drama

Proving a point is not my burden
But surviving and scoring is
To duck and weave: ain’t no sign of weakness
Resistance signals temperament
Intention to persist, at any odds

Bring it on bowlers!!
For I am here for the long haul
