Seven Times #68: Talking Football


 

We’re talking about football players
Who support demonstrations
That cause resignations
Of administrations

We’re talking about football players
With alleged deflations
Giving commendations
To boisterous republican nominations

We’re talking about football players
In domestic violence situations
Managing to avoid incarcerations
Paying fines and put on probation

We’re talking about football players
Smoking weed for recreation
Or possibly just self-medication
Getting 4 games unpaid vacation

We’re talking about football players
Involved in altercations
Poking eyeballs in frustration
Perhaps indicative of our nation
