The hypocrites in sport
Fair play for the athletes seeking the extra inch, a second less
The ‘cheats’ who use a standard dope
to help them work at par all day
use alcohol or fags to smoke
yet are not banned from work and play.
But those who find a substance new
that helps them physically — to win;
by hypocrites, a ruling few,
are cast into the bin of sin.
A shorter life may come to all,
The athletes must be free to choose
a poison suited to their call,
twixt drugs or cigarettes or booze.
Ascent of man – for distance, speed
should not be bound by men in ties.
Perfomance aids as based on need
made free to all. No cheats, no lies !
