Chasing Fame, Glory And The All-Mighty Dollar

The promises
Of fame, glory
And the all-mighty dollar
So hard to resist

This illusion
The fans applaud
As favorite sons
Rewrite the games

Each edge
Every advantage
Must be taken
And exploited

Impelled to excel
Struggling to succeed
For promises

Then, magic potions
Quick short-cuts
Guaranteed untraceable
At least for now

Until someone wises up
Or jealousy overcomes
Or technology catches up
The next test to take/make/fake

The fans struggle
As favorite sons
Go down in flames
