Anti-Trumpster Jamele Hill Leaving ESPN

Politics and sports do not mix unless the mixture is to unite
Like the ping pong diplomacy or Olympics that call a truce and put conflict in flight
But using sports as a platform to interject personal political beliefs can bring only lost revenues along with grief
Jamele Hill is a classic case
As an anti-Trump pundit totally off base
Rants on ESPN that he was a bigot, as a president not fit
Missing the point-fans watching a game want non sports disputes to quit
Calling advertisers to boycott the Cowboys
Biting the pocket of ESPN who her employs
Not very bright, not very smart
So today she announced she would depart
Good riddance and farewell
On sports absent politics one hopes you dwell
Or shed the sports and join the commentators on the political scene
Hopefully without the rhetoric today so nasty and mean
