ASADA WADA - a supplementary saga

ball umpire
ball umpire
ball umpire

it was clearly holding
and now the perfect A-plus umpire
get a grip mate
an empire of umpires
and all the media sharks jump sharks
bomb bombers
don jumpers, our colours, our sash slashed
and hall-of-famers, using famous flamers
pontificating punters
pulling punches on benches
showing cause to show cause
where perhaps on the greyest of days
it never rains in round twelve
a slow slow slow cook
