Football Fan

I’m not a fan of football
Not even the slightest bit
I’d rather nurse my liquor
Or scoff at boys for watching tits

But when my country plays,
I’m a raving maniac
Who pretends to know a conditioned play
And what a free kick looks like so I know when to react

Drums beating through my chest; adrenaline pumped
Cursing stout-faced men for biased refereeing
Cheering loudly in support of the yet-to-be champs
Still simultaneously wildly cursing

The other team’s got fine lads
But my team’s got the ball
My neighbor bet his goat on winning; if we lose he’ll be sad
It’s a goal!!!!! The streets will bawl!

I’m not a fan of football
Not even the slightest bit
But when my country plays,
I’m the biggest fanatic
