The Russians would prefer an auction
The Qataris and Spanish prefer to barter
The Brits with a stiff upper lip
Abide by the Order of the Garter
Mr FIFA and his minions
Just try to brush under the carpet
They all have too much invested
In this mad commodities market
And so two World Cups in tandem
Are awaiting the venue decision
We put our trust in principled ethics
That we may not be howling in derision!
But to underestimate the passion
Of our Beautiful and global game?
Smacks to me of a guilty denial
And fingers ready to point and blame!
