That Substance

In some cases today one can questioned the performances of sportsmen

That Substance

These days in sports people raised eyebrows as if to query
Whether it was winning by super playing that resulted in victory
Because in some sports this ugly head is now being raised and causing a problem
And so there is that concern the some players are accused of match fixing

So now those playing cricket are now under lots of pressure
Because they have to be cautious of what they do in their leisure
Such as trying to avoid talking to anyone about the state of a game
Because what may seem an innocent conversation can later be professional pain

In those sports where there those playing may have a great potential
And that person at the top of the game may be so financially wonderful
So this dream may fuel that temptation now overbearing to take that chance
Resulting in the taking of something so that the performance will get enhance

That dream by an Olympian of mounting that top spot on the podium
To take the gold medal amid a background of the applause of those in the stadium
How that opportunity and many more can be there is such great abundance
But how this will fall apart with the positive for a ban substance

How many times there are some great performances which pose question
But then this is brought by watching some performances of a champion
One Olympic high performance may be the one who was burning the track
Then in a subsequent one seems to be the only always last in the pack

A sportsman feeling that lure and great potential of a great future
Being some much in demand that the businesses are falling over
But that little dabble which can give the performance so assistance
Will certainly see the light of the futures loses it luminance

Not only sports persons to this behavior seems fair game
One can hear of entertainers often doing the same
Those demands and many of those tight schedules too
Will often make the use something as a crutch to see them through

So one can say that respect for fair play is slowly dying
As more emphasis is placed on being the one or team winning
And so there is that will do whatever it takes to be dominant
Even to the point of taking something to be an assistant

I heard some people are injecting themselves with something called frog juice? I know some people are also trying questionable things on race horses too, all just to make money I guess.
