Your Weekly Politickle: Game Over

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

GAME OVER
Though I’d watched competitions, all sorts —
On the fields, in arenas, on courts —
Players taking a knee
Was just too much for me:
I am done with “professional” sports.

From the archive

HOGGWASH
“Receive our wisdom, peasants,
And be grateful for our presence
As your benefactors,”
Say anchors and actors,
Athletes, and adolescents.
(2018)

Last week’s limerick

ALMOST OVER
New Year’s Eve, now at long last, is near.
How we wish it were already here!
Eye to eye we don’t see,
But on this we agree:
Twenty-twenty was not a good year.
