Transfer Window

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Numbers
Fly off the chequebook
Like an MP’s expense claim.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Transfer deals
Use telephone numbers
For money.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Fans struggle
To buy petrol
To get to the match.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Premier League clubs,
Hearing that money
Is going out of fashion,
Spend shed loads of it,
On a piece of meat.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Austerity
Is a word
Used by other people.

Notes

Will this obscenity of numbers ever stop?
