It’s a headline writers day!
The French in disarray!
The Kiwi’s quoshed!
But then the editors had to get busy
For the All Whites refused to play ball
All those pre-written captions torn up
When they held the Italians to one all
And Kaka didn’t take a blow
But supposedly meted one out
If that’s not overturned by FIFA
Then their authority crumbles to nowt
Keita should be banned forthwith
For his rolling and outrageous faking
And all the cheats who wish to prosper
Should have a message to send them quaking!
But for me that opportunity was missed
When they failed to sanction Henry
And every rogue has inferred
Tis easy to get away scot-free!
I’m not a believer nor advocate
Of in-play technology
But to hit them hard post-match
No way usurps the referee!
A feature so far of this colourful cup
Is how the mighty are falling
England, Spain, Germany falter
But the Azzuris were appalling
And the French are melting down in public
In full view of the press
Then a player’s statement read by Domenech
Sacré bleu! What a mess!
