Proper salutation
Not some half-assed
Bobble of the blade

Shake with true regard
Don't slap, or cringe as if avoiding

Hold on to the socket
Hand it to
The next one up

Extra credit: when defeated
Cheer your opponent
In their next DE

Share—snacks, chairs, credit,
Spare equipment, everything but blame
Courtesy’s embedded in the nature of our game
