The Athlete’s Denial

By Elton Camp

Bulging biceps and great power
Made Jock the man of the hour

As a model of good sportsmanship,
Recognition sent him on an ego trip

Long-standing records broke right & left
Made easier by his impressive heft

But meddlers wouldn’t let it be
“This looks very suspicious to me”

Accusers arose to testify he did it
In fear, they conspired and hid it

At least that is what they all say
Jock claims it wasn’t that way

“Why such drugs I’d never use.
It’s to be liars those guys choose.

Jealousy since I’m better than they
Now the league won’t let me play.”

“If an asterisk is put by my name
My records won’t seem the same.”

The truth of the matter I don’t know
But find it rather disturbing, though
