Ode To Referees

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 They wear black and green
And seem very keen,
On obeying the rules
Set out by those FIFA fools.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Out there on the pitch
Whistle blowing, card raising,
Life is such a bitch
When players are sent off for nothing!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But he’s only doing his job
Or so they say,
But the fans wail and sob
When they don’t get their own way.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Errors are made
Free kicks given in mistake,
As the 90 minutes quickly fade
We need a goal for heaven’s sake!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Armed with a couple of clocks
Tick tock goes the time,
Pulling players about their socks
Are rolled down socks such a crime?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The linesmen are on the touchline
Purposely wearing out the grass,
Thinking they are doing fine
But they have no class!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The crowd scream as offside is ruled
Shouting with all of their mite,
Thinking the ref has them fooled
But come full time there will be a fight.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 So as the referee ends the game
The crowd boo and hiss,
But maybe he was not to blame
For chances where taken but where missed!
