Simple New Year’s Reboot

How about the quiet start
To the new year in 1969
When president elect Nixon
Watched Ohio State beat USC,
Who had the great OJ Simpson.

Little did America know
What was in store for these two,
Their wicked ways
Would divide the country
Because of their simple chicanery.

Nixon would commit high crimes
Get pardoned and stay a laughing stock.
Simpson might have murdered,
Getting off criminally,
Only to run into trouble with theft.

The pageantry of college football
Brought them together
If only from a distance.
What a simple start to 1969.
Too bad we didn’t know…
