Sports showcase great athletic prowess, but politics are just scary and ugly - a poem.
A unified searchlight, glitzy and glammed,
Is seeking a pouring so soggy and damned.
Political changes must aim to get slammed,
But privately awful, the purpose gets rammed. 

A sculpted yet gorgeous display tries to fill
A thorough contrivance, the ultimate thrill.
But having your teammates expunge that ill will
Does prove that united, the pleasure’s not nil.

Actively voice it as value, not shame -
A vision constructed to never cast blame.
The sweet road to triumph seems always an aim.
What everyone’s seeking is hell of the same.
