Football is just like life

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football is unpredictable
but then again so is life
one week you’re riding high
the next it’s full of strife.
The team that you support
can bring you joy and pain
they bring out emotions
and send you nearly insane.
You spend lots of money
that you really can’t afford
following them home and away
instead of a holiday abroad.
Football can be an addiction
and take over one’s life
it can ruin relationships
and even lose a wife.
It can affect your health
and sometimes you lose sleep
because your team let you down
with performances to make you weep.
So football is just like life
with all its ups and downs
one minute you’re smiling
the next it’s tears and frowns !


I reckon life and football have a lot in common hence this poem, but as I’m a Coventry City supporter my life borders on depression !
