Minutes after the Super Bowl win,

Mahomes celebrated with a big grin.

Eavesdropping by hot-dropped microphones,

The MVP doesn't want trips or rhinestones.

Mahomes boldly states, that there is more to achieve.

Leaving unknown listeners to disbelieve.

On the field with his wife and teammates,

His voice, there weren't any mistakes.

Before they dispersed,

The quarterback announced that he wanted to be first.

Next year, wanting to win one more,

Mahomes would be the first to win three straight Super Bowl titles an amazing score.


Author's notes: This is for sleepy drafts unofficial eavesdropping sleepy mission challenge. Inspiration came from the Super Bowl game. This is one of the many hot-dropped microphone incidents that were reported online. Without a doubt, frustrations and emotions were displayed. However, the MVP has an accomplishment plan for next year.

Here's sleepy drafts' challenge:

    Situations warrant you keep tab on cheating spouse when you feel they are been shady lately, exhibit new attitude and characters etc. They no longer care at home, come home late nights and being clingy to their phone that’s a sign of cheating. In my own case, I was able to catch my cheating wife in her way when I employed the services of KELVINETHICALHACKER @ GMAIL COM. Who gave me access to all her texts, calls and many more there I could get vivid proofs to confront which she couldn’t deny. This info really helped our home, are you in need of a similar help don’t hesitate to write KELVIN. You need this genuine service to be free from your worries.
