How Many Men

Added on 02 July 2010

At last a return to football

After two days

In majestic impotence

Once more the giants will

Walk the fields of glory

Spraying passes of gold

Like streams of urine

In the water closet of

World Cup dreams

But how many grown men

Will grab their leg

And cry like children

How many men will clutch their face

And lie and cheat

How many men will scream and howl

Taking a quick glance at the referee

To ensure he's given a foul

How much of the game

Will be lost

How much majesty will be drowned

Beneath the vomit

Of spewing petulance

In the end the only genuine tears

Will be ours

As the game dies

By the hand of

Big Business
