FOOTBALL:

 FOOTBALL:
How many of you are fed up with football?
It's been on TV every night of the week.
Our regular programmes being disrupted,
While other pleausres we have had to seek.

To see twenty two grown men
Chasing around after one poor football.
They kiss and hug if a goal is scored,
Haven't they anything better to do at all?

Imagine the "Feelings" of that poor ball,
Being kicked from piller to post.
All it wants is a quiet life in a shop,
Yes, that's what it requires most.

If only they could talk, what would they say?
Please stop kicking me around.
I know that's how you get your kicks
And gets paid million of pounds.

Too much money for one to handle,
That could lead to drugs and drink.
After a night out on the town
You just make it to the kitchen sink.

You live a lavish lifestyle
You footballers one and all.
And who have you got to thank?
But that poor kicked around football.

PS: My son was a pro. foootballer at one time.

    1. What's the difference between Football, soccer and American Football Alex?
      Any way I feel sorry for the ball being kicked about.
      Thanks for your visit.

  4. I only watch when I feel the need to, so I can imagine those who have no care for it, and having their regular programmes disrupted. And oh the poor ball indeed.

  6. LOL! Poor ball. It hasn't a chance. It is called soccer in the U. S. and football has a different kind of ball. Myself, I prefer baseball, but I never thought of how the ball might feel when the bat hits it. Ouch! Great post.

  8. I hope my brother-in-laws don't read this, but I don't blame you. I don't like soccer and can't see the point. However, they were All-American's in High School and my oldest brother in law was recruited by the San Jose team, but he wanted to do other things. I guess the same championship game that interrupted your TV schedule interferred with my daily dose of Judge Judy. But, real football, now that is another story! :)
