One Law For Them

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 1 When the ref blows three times on the whistle
It’s the moment a football match ends.
Except when you’re playing Man United.
When that is the case, it depends.
If injury time isn’t sufficient
(And extended by three minutes more)
You can restart the game for a spot kick.
They can take it again till they score.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Before that, of course, move the goal posts
So the ball hits them, and then the bar.
And then does it again. Like, for EVER.
No, of course I’m not going too far.
If you think that this verse is just bitter
My conspiracy theory a myth
Cast your mind back to our one cup final
And what they did to poor Gordon Smith.
