Mystery Monday: The Sportsball Men

Standard

“The sportsball men keep running back and forth
Whenever we see any TV screen.
They run from east to west, or south to north
But we cannot determine what they mean
To gain by this. It’s endlessness defies
What we know of your logic.” “Attache,”
Began the aide, one hand over his eyes
(The being he addressed was in the way
Of maddening if seen) “It’s just a game.”
“When do they rest? They sometimes get to change
Their clothing, but we see, much to our shame,
The chase breaks only for the sponsors. Strange!”
“Wait, you do know there’s more than just two teams?”
The aide said. “It’s not as cruel as it seems!”
