Pigskin Latitudes

Pigskin Latitudes

By Julius Hungeski

(Apologies to Jim Morrison)

When the referees conspire with cameras

And their sullen and aborted

Flags breed tiny monsters,

True football is dead.

Awkward instant

And there must be indisputable video evidence,

Sponsors furiously pumping

their cash green gallop,

And heads nod down

Bored

Commercial

Pause

Consent

In mute spectator agony

Carefully reviewed

And mulled over.
