What Are You Saying?

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why are the people looking shocked and stunned?

'The one they elected to public office,
To represent their interests.
Has actually confessed to making a mistake,
Without it being yet formally acknowledged.'

NO! ?

'Yes!
And on top of it,
He is holding himself accountable...
For his own actions.'

WHAT?
What on Earth did he do?

'He was seen early this morning.
Jogging.
And without a jockstrap! '

So...
What do you suspect will happen next?

'Well,
It is just a rumor.
No one yet has had this confirmed.
Or has come forward with any evidence.'

Who started the rumor?

'I have my own suspicions.
And these politicians today will do anything,
To get re-elected.'

What are you saying?

'Look!
Would you be that concerned,
About who had a jockstrap on jogging...
At 5: 30 in the morning?
It's not like he's a member of the royal family.
No one cares to spot his jewels.'

What time in the morning does he jog?
And where?
