In The Cold Light o’ Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Two balls on the pitch?
At best, an iffy penalty kick?
A green light beamed in Kasper Schmeichel’s face?
Danish national anthem loudly booed?
Flipped over a country’s triumphant mood
To what us real fans loathe…embarrassing disgrace.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 UEFA intent on holding an enquiry
Doesn’t inspire a jot o’ confidence in me
The harsh reality is the match should be replayed?
“Geezers completely lost the plot?”
Maybe, I’m accused of having done so quite a lot
But…I believe in the age-old adage called, fair-play.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Finally, my thoughts on the lino and referee,
Whom failed to refer to VAR, or even see
Said, two balls on the pitch, or iffy penalty shout?
Are best kept to myself tis safe to say?
Yet should both wish to contact me today…
I know a blinding (sic) Spec-Savers could sort them out.

Notes

I noticed UEFA officials, called to the touch-line, just after the match started, by the referee, spring in to action about something, though I’d no idea at the time what?
A cracking evening, and match, for the most part, in the cold light o’ day, just went pear-shaped, at least in my eyes anyway. But hey…news just this minute in. UEFA are contemplating experimenting ten subs per team, during ninety minutes, in the Euro-Final? I’ve just heard, so all, in the beautiful game, is not lost…yet?

Peace.

Stay sage. Bode well.
