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.
