When the jocks begin to claim

A handful of National Football League players demonstrated during the national anthem Sunday, but without the widespread protests that some league officials had anticipated on the day of the first full slate of games.

When the jocks begin to claim

justice from a football game,

time has come to find new blood;

nip the problem in the bud.

Take these NFL monarchs;

let ’em play in public parks.

Take away their cushy perks;

why condone such beefy jerks? 

If they must protest, why not

put them in the parking lot?

There these erstwhile levelers 

can shout at tailgate revelers.
