‘Sepp tick’ vote

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 BBC Sport online:
Sepp Blatter was re-elected as president of FIFA for a fourth
four-year term on Wednesday 1st June 2011.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He won a landslide victory at FIFA’s 61st Congress by securing 186 votes out of 203.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Landslide:
If I take that literally
Then there’s lots of mud
And in this case
All of it sticks

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Voters united
All behind their single choice
From a select list
Of one.
Some say fix

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Some wanted a postponement
Time to reflect – and inject – transparency
The English FA
And several others
In the mix

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But the powers that be
(singular)
Pushed on –
Railroading;
(usual) Tricks

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 And so we’re left
With a misogynist in charge
Of a global game
Championing for a dame
In short short knicks

Or at least we would if he had his way!
I’m not a fan of what he says or the way he says it.
I’m not a fan of the way he operates.
I’m not enamoured with the 2022 choice.
I do appreciate the way FIFA has overseen the growth of football commercially.
I welcome any forthcoming investigation / reform.
