Strange Rules of Deception
by DCDave

How do they keep us in our well-managed position?
Well, they manage to do it with fake opposition,
Which seems to be hitting the other side hard,
But never gets over the ninety-ninth yard.

In case there are some who still don't know the score,
I'll give it by mixing my metaphor:
They go for the ankle and never the throat,
And they lure real opponents into one leaky boat.

David Martin
