I wasn’t taught at Sunday School
that God’s a football fan,
and I’m positive I’ve heard He’s not
a South American,
so while theologians argue
and the priesthood cries dissent,
let’s recall that Hand of God,
so there’s no argument.
No one denies the ball went in,
deflected by a hand,
later claimed as from on high –
what I don’t understand
is why no one’s grasped the logic:
God’s an Englishman, you see.
The scorer wasn’t Maradona,
it was Lord Above (o.g.)
