Football in the Sitting Room

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football in the sitting room
Is frowned upon in certain quarters.
So absence is required of wives
And mothers too, and snitching daughters.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Football in the sitting room
Means you must make a bit of space,
Armchairs pulled back to the wall,
And lamps moved to the hall, in case.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Football in the sitting room
Is won by strength of legs and thighs.
Confined spaces mean that games
Are often won by strength and size.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Football in the sitting room
Requires a soft and spongy ball
Not something very hard, with which
A careless volley means a fall.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Football in the sitting room
Will have you quickly out of breath.
But if you’re caught, expect a slow
Excruciating, painful death.
