The latest interview with Mark McGwire, the baseball slugger, was filled with tears and remorse…several years after he denied any wrong doing. The most disturbing part, however, was his lack of acknowledgment about the steroids impact on his performance. He credited a ‘higher power’. He was high alright (or ‘juiced’ as they say). Either way, his accomplishments are forever tarnished. He may still be in denial but the rest of us are under no such delusions.
It was tough to listen to McGwire
Whose drug use showed him a liar.
With his records on trial
He’s still in denial
And his claim to fame stuck in the mire.
