Arriving at a conclusion - a sports victory is the proof - a poem.
|A maddening corruption -
The corralling so in complete denial.
The unimaginable devil’s
Forever laying in dubious closure.
Unmasked and disheartening -
An intrepid and forthright matter
Of basic cheating
Displaying an abysmal, egregious,
And deviant code of ethics
And a shadowy belief.
A filthy notion known to the theatre;
And a usurping of glorious precedent.
A vision of surreal contentment.
The nearness to nuisance -
These visible, satanic claims.
A banjo society
Constricted by the totality
Of these crafty efforts;
Soiled in the depths
Of this comical design,
The fingerless ethos
Of tangled serenity
Assuaging those shameful proclivities.
