the naughty step

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 from the room next door
the tv pumps out multi pixels

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I see flashes of colour
when all I really want to see
are flashes of brilliance

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 the naughty step just doesn’t have
the right angle to the screen

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 and so my punishment
is further torture
in its proximity to that Premiership portal

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but how come
when Rooney catches his volley
just so
we all shout and cheer and celebrate?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I guess the net helps –
unlike net curtains
catching shards of glass
