There’s a War in Yemen

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There’s a war in Yemen
But does anybody care
There’s a war in Yemen
Near a million disappeared

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Alan Shearer makes his comments
Ukraine’s plight has left him shocked
But he sings a different toon
For the Geordie’s rising stock

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Never mind the bloodshed
Just pay Caesar what he’s due
No more Roman roubles doubling
Sacks of Saudi cash will do

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There’s war in Yemen
It’s a case of pull and putsch
There’s a war in Yemen
But they just don’t look like us

Notes

Excellent article from Ronay: www.theguardian.com/football/2022/mar/11/shouldnt-someone-in-football-also-care-about-the-war-in-yemen-just-a-little
As the bard says, ‘If you prick us, do we not bleed? ‘
