RHYMES AND REASONS
Ryan's Not-So-Great Adventure in Rio
Lessons Lochte leaves us

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
September 2, 2016

Yes, Ryan Lochte lied and lost.
He trashed a loo and learned the cost
of drinking to the point of drunk
and acting like a fool.

So needlessly he paid the price
for dodging what he knew was nice.
He dove into disaster's wake
and wasted what he'd won.

And here's the lesson from his fate.
To drink til drunk's a big mistake.
You lose endorsements right and left,
your reputation, too.

I hope that Michael Phelps can save
his teammate who has misbehaved.
He knows firsthand the curse of booze
and how it steals your joy.
