It’s a funny old game is Football You walk for miles down roads and up stairs to get to those golden ticketed chairs – then as players take to the field you wait for the referee to yield – the man in the middle – you await his call and for stars on the pitch to start kicking the ball.
Then as it does, and ball travels back a flag or a whistle stops the attack and you lament the official – in yellow blue or black But in his defence – he follows the rules and his fellows know their stuff – they’re no fools So when whistle is signalled and games underway They’re there to ensure there’s a bit of fair play.
And when defender tackles striker, and he goes in far too hard. The Man in the middle gives warning with a bright yellow coloured card. And player knows better, to look out instead as the last thing he wants to see is red!
And when the match is over, He whistles out to all… “The match time is now finished – That’s the last kick of the ball!”
