The ‘Bigger Picture’

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s a ‘Great World Cup’ I hear people say.
Last minute drama, a 100 minutes of play.
Shock after shock, underdogs are through.
Pundits raving about the World Cup 2022.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But let’s not forget the bigger picture here.
A Qatar backdrop of discrimination and fear.
A state in fear of every Rainbow they find.
So no game of football will change my mind.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What occurs on the pitch, takes a back seat.
The glory of victory or the despair of defeat.
Group stages, last 16, it means nothing to me.
As the Qatari ‘bigger picture’ is all I can see.
