A 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
regarded 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.
