PENALTY KISS
 
  Deflated pigskin, not enough to kick New England out of Super Bowl 49,
Marshawn Lynch wears a Beast Mode hat to "talk to" the press,
     From the League that gave us concussions, domestic violence, and the drugging of injured players,
Rules - women and children - were made to be broken; we shouldn't expect anything less.
                                
     How convenient! The "Deflategate" investigation won't be completed by February 1st?
One infraction major, the other minor in my mind,
    Cheating to get to the championship game versus violating an off field dress code,
I'm curious as to who, if anyone, the NFL decides will be fined.
 
     My guess is neither, or one or both lightly,
Think of it as a Penalty Kiss,
     If the Patriots win, finding them culpable will be prohibited,
No one awards a trophy and then metes out a dis.
 
     There's another game in town, perhaps no coincidence,
The Tigerless Waste Management Phoenix Open,
     All kidding aside, clean up's what the golf sponsor does,
Perhaps a hint - or at least, here's hopin'!
