Helen of Troy Deja Vu on a Sunday Afternoon

We have known a woman’s face can launch a thousand ships
But would a light touch cause a like number to leave their mooring slips?
Proof positive can be found in the wing capital on the beach
Great libations and Pterodactyl wings in easy reach
Crowded Sunday at Mutt Lynches with rain off and on
Football on many screens as rabid fans flail on each other or bond
A server with such a light touch like a piece de resistance
While opposing fans in their rooting seats are for duration ensconced
A server and venue that merits a Michelin Five while dodging rain in a pinch
Holding serving court in a place known as Mutt Lynches
She answers to the name of Sammy
If not serving but singing she would take home many a Grammy
