Ronnie O’Sullivan

When Ronnie O’Sullivan walks to the table
He demonstrates skills of which too few are able
The balls are on strings or it may just be magic
The face of opponents can border on tragic
A red then a colour though nothing was on
Before you can blink all the others are gone
With left hand or right he can win any frame
Yes Ronnie O’Sullivan’s King of this game!

Author notes

For my American readers snooker is a game not unlike pool but played on a larger table with smaller pockets, currently the 2012 World Championship final is under way.
