Fit And Proper ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Dodgy deals, corruption galore – that shady
Past in a far away country; a ‘fit and proper’
Owner ? Sure, he’s got money and will spend
It – for reflected glory on a footballfield in
England. So he must be okay, mustn’t he ?
We won’t say too much, won’t ask questions
If the team starts winning (or even if they don’t).
Honour, decency, respect, probity – obsolete
Words in today’s soccer cash orgy, where it’s
Not how you got it – but how much you’ve got.
