Preparatory Ping-Pong

With just a small paddle held in his hand,
The incoming projectile obeys his command
As it lands on the table filled with rotation
Thanks to his precise hand-eye coordination.

But his opponent, well-versed in the Ping Pong ways,
Returns the volley with a simple paddle raise.

Considering the competence of his adversary,
Our ping pong prodigy presumed it necessary
To play out the match with no holds barred
By holding the rules in complete disregard.

He dives for the ball, though it’s no longer in play,
And carries on conversation as if this move were cliché;
“Yeah, I didn’t have any finals so today was a good day.”
