Poetry: “Modern heroes”

The athletes so many of us admire…

Based on an overheard conversation in the break room.


Modern heroes

We pay our heroes
For the trouble
To give distractions
From our lives

Bleak and grey
With much monotony
These moving bodies
A burst of light

The money leeches
From our pockets
Into their vaults

As they drive
Their customs vehicles
We make do
With bus and train

Yet we still
Raise up our voices
Cheer them on
On TV screens
