Politics, be a sport


Of politics, the sport I view,
like others watch the balls
that fly above the fields run through
the dulled suburban sprawls:

It's back and forth, dialectic'ly,
and people are its pawns.
It's making myth and cunning pleas,
and language is its brawn.

The others: frivolous delights,
but do not have the heft
of history-made human plights
and all that we have left.

The team who wins will change our lives
much more than people know,
the people who themselves deprive
of watching Maddow's show.
