How Much is Enough?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 How much money do you really need
Is it market forces or just plain greed
How many Ferraris in the drive
The constant snort of I ME MINE

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When will your pot of sporting gold
Manifest in terms of stay or sold
King of the pitch, a verb a noun
But football sans fans a hollow crown

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A contract is a joke these days
More clauses than a Santa sleigh
The agents feed the trough of press
And pull the strings for more not less

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Food prices rising day by day
Covid that ain’t gone away
Vlad the Bad impales his troops
Takes aim at babies coldly shoots

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Knighthoods gongs for cronies all
And each invited to the ball
The wizard hides behind the veil
Just pull the curtain, see his tale.
