The Role Model

Would that I could be a star
an athlete with great fame renown
to sink a ball into a hoop
or smack a ball with a wooden bat
and carry a ball across a field
where the measure of man
is contractual gain
even though I must play in the rain

a role model for the common youth
even though I am uncouth

I may shoot a man
abuse a woman
commit adultery when I can
I can box very well
and beat someone without a care
and if that doesn't work
I’ll bite off an ear
I must practice each day to make the win
and after the game, let the fun begin
excellent drugs, let freedom ring!
ah, would that I could be a star
an athlete with great fame renown
I just sign here and here’s my goal
all I do is sell my soul

    Thank you,Nette: I wrote that poem quite a few years and I only submitted it because of more spousal abuse and now child abuse. There is something about a sports figure that makes him think he's a god.

    fame can sometimes consume a person and make him less humane... your work is brilliant, serge.. huggs
