Sporting Hero

A sporting hero

sits alone at the bar

his mind full of memories

of when he was a star.

Now that he is older

nobody cares,

people walk in

and ignore that he is there.

A few years ago,

he was the talk of the town

but today he is

remembered as a clown.

For a while he had

tried to live off his fame

until they realised

all his stories were the same.

Now he is left

to buy his own drink

and to ponder

how much further he can sink.
