the forgotten sports persons

The forgotten sports persons
The years the nation celebrated with them
The high and low of their careers in sports
When these sports persons leave the stage

The nation hasn't heard of them anymore
We don't hear what have happened
Until the newspapers report of the dire lives
Living in old folk homes or struggling to live

Even their teammates hardly bring up the news
Those sports persons living in poor and forgotten
Is this how the nation remember them?
Out of stage out of the news?

The nation should set up a fund now
Maybe through Socso which has so much surplus fund
It can help to alleviate the hardship facing by these sports persons
They brought glory to the nation

They brought the name in high esteem
At least the government of the day
Find ways to assist these forgotten sports persons
Let them know the nation hasn't forgotten them
