A Football Poem

The poem below was written for all those guys who think poetry is not for them, that poetry is for girls!  My guess was that many of you might read/listen if it's got football in it, innit? Apologies to that small number of guys who dislike sport as much as some of us do ...

If There Is A God...
(a poem from my Dolly Mix collection)

Supposing there is, right?
and it's a ‘he’ right
Well, he's bound to like it, innit
….football!



Most men do, yeh? It's a known fact.
And if so, then...
how does he pick a team, yeh?
One to shout for, right?

Well he can't can he?
He's supposed to love everyone, yeh?.
So if he's there, right,
at the Arsenal stadium,
is he like...an all seeing presence
wanting both sides to win
just for the love of the beautiful game?

Or, is he that fat bald bloke
sitting quietly in the stands
with his hands in his pockets, smiling.

That's what I'd like to know…

course if god's a 'she',
then my whole idea’s
blown out the water, innit?
