“It’s Sport, Jim, But Not as we Knew It …”

So, some moneybody said,

“How about we

Pay more for ’em,

Set no limits,

Pay ’em more;

Give ’em much more

Than an hour an’ a bit

Of a Saturday afternoon?

Put the celebrity shine on

Lads who once were welders,

Scoring for chicken ‘n beans?

Pay someone to fashion their hair,

Their gear, their pounds;

Move ’em from

The back to the front?

Have someone choose

Their rivals, their causes,

Their diets, the models

They roll, their opinions?

“What say, we give it a try –

What’s the worst that can happen?-

See what goes on in the world

That, in former, more erstwhile,

Innocent times, we called sport.”
