Football, Fags and Fools

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Why is it sport attracts booze and gambling
Both addictions guaranteed to shorten any career
Blight all families cursed by this

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Best Gascoigne Adams
The list is endless
Yet still each Sky game is punctuated
By lager top ads and gambling webs

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No one says a word
It’s all buried between the goalposts
“He’s just being one of the lads”
They say of 30 year old yobs
Whose grasp of reality
Ends up gasping in gutters and dirt.
