October 13, Distraction


A racist, homophobe, misogynist: that’s standard fare.

But a “distraction?” too much for the NFL to bear.

John Gruden has resigned when all his emails came to light.

Now, are there other “icebergs,” mostly hidden from the light?


Remember Colin Kaepernick, the man who took a knee?

To owners in the NFL, almost a felony.

Police brutality protested while our anthem played,

Was a “distraction;” Colin Kaepernick was fired and flayed.


Pro football is a man’s game: not for “pussies” or for “queers.”

They’ll stick with old “traditions” and get rid of pioneers.

Black athletes are great players but aren’t chosen as head coach.

That’s still a line of scrimmage owners don’t want to encroach.


The season’s underway; another whistle has been blown.

“Distraction” the infraction, and a yellow flag was thrown.

The coach has been disqualified, so there’s a vacancy.

Now, who will fill that coaching job?  We’ll have to wait and see.
