STEROID ENHANCED PLAYERS

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

It took awhile to accept

that I wouldn’t get rich

from selling baseball cards.

 

As rookie cards

of steroid enhanced players

don’t hold much value

 

and the moral decay

of our society otherwise

simply will not tolerate

impurity in the nation’s pastime.

 

The sportswriters sit in judgment

in the dark booth in a cheap bar

drinking cheap whiskey 

and smoking cheap cigars.

 

Somehow, the players 

don’t measure up

to this strict moral code.
