Football's problem - a tee-total football fan's message to UEFA


We've heard sectarian and racist hate
seen a governing body in a sad old state
fans forced to flee flying fists in fear
but football's problem is not just beer.

We've Neo-Nazis, ultras and yobs
most whom must hold decent jobs.
Some come just for the fight I hear
so football's problem can't be just beer.

We over-pay schoolboy prima-donnas
to create cheap imitation Maradonas
for a si...

FOAMING FURY

FOAMING FURY


Against a backdrop of broiling grey
The dancing colours flap & wave away 
To all who can see and for all left to be
A warning about the worsening sea

A relentless outburst of desperate cries
Fighting the force of the cloudy sighs
And the seas whip up a daring wager
To all who seek the thrill of danger

Teasing and testing the brave and bold
Icy waves, so strong and co...

Get Set ...........GO

Get set go

 

 

On your marks …..

          Get ready …..

                   Go

                        Back to bed

The world can just speed off

Gather momentum

Keep pace

I’ll just

  Watch from the duvet the

   Safest place

 

 

Full speed ahead

Wiz round another

Tower block

 

No noise, sense or touch

Keep the windows...

The Umpire’s Decision

The Umpire’s Decision 
at a Women’s Seniors Tennis Match

 

Sitting in this chair I see you,

Tension stretching every nerve.

My life’s tea would be much sweeter

With you there, “Miss Mills to serve.”

 

I remember other summers.

Football king meets tennis queen:

At first sight I lost my heart

To you, Miss Mills, at just “Fifteen, love.”

 

Playing,...

Thanks to Patricia & Stefan for getting me thinking about this topic again.......

 

 

Animals

 

this lion was sat there

being a lion

when a man

who beat his wife and kids

shot him

through the head

and used his fur

for a rug

 

this alligator was sat there

being an alligator

when a man

who raped a child

thrust a spear

Black Sunday

(Ayrton Senna was killed on the 1st May 1994 at the Italian race circuit of Imola. In F1 racing circles the day is known as Black Sunday.)

 

Hard and fast and foot to the floor

Burning rubber

Spinning wheels

Yellow Helmet, blue car

 

Flat to the corner and turn the wheel

Down the gears

Off the brakes

Clip the apex

Hold the road

 

Tamburello to...

Africa United

entry picture

 

Black stars in the dark that shone so bright,

Pan continental sparks were reignited,

In a flood-lit calabash, man what a sight!

Eleven Ghanaians became Africa United.

 

For the global Diaspora of Africans whose numbers stretched to billions,

A short but welcome distraction from conflict and debt,

From the highest to the lowest, military to civilians,

The to...

Tennis

entry picture

 

Some people say:

if you have strength

you don’t need brain,

but I would like to say:

it doesn’t come with tennis.

If you take a racket and go to court,

my Lord!

You better use your brain

but not the mass

which is called ass.

I would like to confess:

playing tennis is like playing chess,

you certainly need strength

but using your smartnes...
