Argument

footballArgument

The fuse was lit at Half Time

but its a slow burner this one

was it a foul?

infringement ?

or just down right dangerous ?

 

Learned friends,

now debate

On Blue on Red

bringing up ancient history

in the process

 

They argue their sides

Was he beaten by skill

or was it the pill

of the overpulled shirt

too much to swallow ?

 

The Linesman Flags…

and there’s loads of handbags

as Ref points to the spot

Blue covers his eyes to

decision of the wise

and Red Cheers on the shot.

 

A Goal is scored, Argument put to bed

Case Closed, in the water dead

Red smiles on with apparent glee

Blue reflects on history
