Set

opponents have failed to overtake

playground shawty

Wimbledon woman

best tennis player to smash the game

meaning domination is

Williams

meaning gilded

built from greatness

twirl and repeat

 

 

During Black History Month and beyond (cuz face it, every month deserves Black History), this blog will honor people who demonstrated critical elements of the Black / African experience with commemorative poems. This poem pays homage to Serena Williams, legendary tennis player. Please don’t introduce her to blackfolk as if she new.
