A Football Poem: The English Premier League – the “Beautiful” League

We are Liverpool FC
and we are world
class players,
We are challenging
to win the English
Premier League –
will God answer our
prayers?

We are Man City FC
and we are the best
team by far
We are doing very
well in the football
league – and when
we do win – we enjoy
a drink at the bar!

The English Premier
League has changed
over the years
Some enjoy celebrating –
but others are in tears.
The standards are so
very high and skill is
always on show
World class players
show their class – it
is always good to know.

The money means a
lot as it does produce
results,
Alarmingly high wages
are paid to the players
without any sulks!
But what happens when
the players do not earn
their money – and their
tempers always crack?
It is always the manager’s
who get the blame –
and in some cases the
sack.

But it is an enjoyable
game to watch – as they
compete to be champions.
Even if you win or lose –
there’s always express
opinions!
So enjoy the “beautiful”
game of the English
Premier League footy
And if you want to
watch a game – don’t
forget to pay your
money!
