According to Joe
Michael, set a better example!
Michael Phelps, who thrilled the nation
Has hired a dud for public relations
He now is among our famous role models
Yet they have him hyping food from McDonald's.
His image will appear on Frosted Flakes
What's next, endorsing Hostess cupcakes?
He should capitalize on his enormous feat
By advising our youth about what not to eat.
Daily headlines inspire the poet in Joe Gedan, a retired U.S. magistrate judge who lives in Honolulu. His observations on the news appear on Sundays and Fridays.
