Moth Balls

October 11, 2021

In a cult like fashion of

Moths drawn to a flame

From around the state

To a regional football game

Dressed in specific colors

Emblazoned with some name

Worshipping at the alter

Of the temporarily insane


For it is zombie like they seem

Though they own nothing

But say it is “their” team

Claiming the touchdown

From the comfort of their seat

Whilst drinking beer

Repeat after repeat


Passing habits on to children

Developing many in adolescence

In the art of a social distraction

While glorifying paid for violence

A micro version of war

Which is really the pretense


“I don’t mind about the war, it’s one of the things I like to watch, if it is a war going on. ‘Cause then I know then, if our side is winning, if our side is losing.

Roger Waters

“What God Wants, part 1”
From “Amused To Death”

No chance society is going to
Mothball this activity as it needs
Sponsors and consumers to feed
Winners & losers of corporate greed

Domestic violence surges after a football match ends

Alcohol is a major player in the relationship between sport and abuse

– The Economist

Enjoy the “game”.
After all, what good is a little violence?
If you can’t bring it home with you?

“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin
