I'm not saying that it shouldn't be.
I'm just saying that I care.
When an athlete gets a zillion dollar contract,
I lose a bit of my hair.
I know that it's simply supply and demand.
They get what the market will bear.
Too many are dumb as a box of Fig Newtons.
This just seems so doggone unfair.
The player's pay is fast approaching,
the GDP of a third world state.
This, for throwing or catching a ball.
Somehow, I just can't relate.
I know that this won't be changing soon.
This is what's paid for these kinds of skills.
Dad, mom and the 2 kids can go to a game,
or pay their monthly bills!
