TENNIS PLAYER 2.0

Tennis Player 2.0 is dead and dead in the water, boiled into a red juice.
No one knows what to do now after what happens with the fight.
Great script, excellent costumes, we make them together, we could sell them at my Aunt's crafting booth. 
She paints classy linoleum placemats because broke WASPs dig pictures of dead fish, boiling hot stuff. 
Or let the TV run, I'm going for a swim, forget about the war.
The warrior in us means we like Avirex without Auntie's dragons, fishcakes anyone. 
Deep fried swimming pool side luncheon.
2.0 is dead, fish dead in the water, but the light breaks easy and we love a good lounge and a bright juice boiled.
Someone fought for you.
You are fighting too. 
Don't forget to forget so you can finally love what's dead.
