Hand of God – Mexico 1986

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I wasn’t taught at Sunday School
that God’s a football fan,
and I’m positive I’ve heard He’s not
a South American,

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 so while theologians argue
and the priesthood cries dissent,
let’s recall that Hand of God,
so there’s no argument.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No one denies the ball went in,
deflected by a hand,
later claimed as from on high –
what I don’t understand

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 is why no one’s grasped the logic:
God’s an Englishman, you see.
The scorer wasn’t Maradona,
it was Lord Above (o.g.)


How great to find the football poets.org site!
