the state of things



by Elvis Shackleton - 11:55 on 12 July 2010

In the end, they came not to play football

But to kick people in the chest


The Dutch

Capable of driving the most

Elegant sports car

Turned up to play

In a bulldozer


They blame the referee

Not me

Or Alan Hansen


The Spanish

For their part

Do not need much of an invitation

To fall over

With face contorted


And now they are

Champions of the World

Which makes it

Strange to think

That on 12th October this year

They will lose to Scotland

At Hampden Park


They say it’s a funny game

But it’s not really.

It’s an angry game

Full of snarling angry people


For the moment the Spanish

Are smiling

But it won’t last
