MEN’S BALLS ARE SO COMMODIFIED

Men’s balls are so commodified.
In sport nuts mount an own-it theme.
How round the world is testies tied.

 
Tap long balls scoring from behind.
So experts screech on FIFA screens.
Men’s balls are so commodified.

 
Foot, golf, soft, base, cue, blue, hard, wide
is open game for love machines.
How round the world is testies tied.

 
Are cheers for balls that fall ringside
more Sontag grab than Craig-stance scene?
Why are men’s balls so commodified?

 
Venues are built for balls slick-slide.
Fans worship balls with bellarmine.
How round the world is testies tied.

 
So clap for a sack or hangout with pride
or cream a man’s balls for a baby’s dream.
Man’s bells are so commodified.
How round the world is testies tied.
