Entry 159

all sorts of sports icons
(theater&politics included)
typify: 
player misconduct, 
doping&dope, 
showboating, 
infidelity,
and domestic violence…

these are the millionaire characters of our carnival called Distraction. yes?
the sports are not on trial. 
the players are not on trial. 
i would only raise attention to how we view these incidents;
rather, 
how quickly we forget&forgive offensive behavior 
from those in the limelight.

Where went the guillotine? 
Where went 
That enthusiasm for justice?

Like what you read? Give Charles.Lee.Poetry. a round of applause.
