It’s not my fault

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s not my fault…
I was born with no arm,
But I can still save a shot without any harm.
It’s not my fault…
I have no hair,
But if you take the mick
I won’t really care!
So maybe you’re a better footballer than me,
But you don’t have to turn to violence to beat me.
It’s not my fault…
I have no leg,
But I’ve still got a brain inside my head.
So why do we have to suffer when inside we are all football lovers.


I wrote this after Mr. Butler gave an assembly about equal opportunities and he showed us some pictures of disabled footballers. The book did not tell us their names. This made me think.
