looking for heroes

Looking for Heroes. 
This small country with a glorious past so sceptical
of the present a longing for what once was and 
will never come back; a country which songs echoes
gentleness and sweet melancholia.
A famous sport star from the near past died and
the country fell into a collective mourning that
seemed to go deeper than the legend´s passing, but
a profound unhappiness about the future itself. 

This austerity imposed from the outside is like a chain
a vortex of misery swirling around making the  land
grey as the politicians who rule them. A country needs
its sporting heroes, alas, the modern ones go and play 
abroad, better pay, ok, but not the same, the legend 
who died, played for his country.

    Sports stars are the modern 'warriors'--the Hercules and the Spartans of the 21st century--who fight for the pure joy--not the overly managed coddled empty uniforms who must tote their internet and hear all the home problems 'real time' while their lives may be in danger. who took the warrior spirits from one of the most amazing military machines in the world? Please...we need you to return!
