Protect us, Lord, from former players spouting
their clichéd tripe when some team’s had a routing.
Whether they’re on radio or tweeting,
they know why this or that team took a beating
and send me off to go and check the grouting.

If you played football once, there is no doubting
your views on current teams will get an outing.
No matter whose opinions you’re repeating,
your airtime will, too sadly, not be fleeting –
from this great epidemic that is sprouting,
protect us, Lord.
