Sporting Humour

It maybe the words we use
not something that we see,
that makes it seem so strange
but maybe it's just me.

In cricket you have a square leg
football teams have wings,
with tennis a forearm is smashed
and golfers play with swings.

Then there's American football
played with a ball out of shape,
and athletes run for miles
to see who can break a tape.

Boxers have a ring with corners
wrestlers use a hammer lock,
baseball is played on a diamond
and badminton with a shuttlecock.

Gymnasts always act as though
they are throwing some kind of fit,
and motor racing drivers
have to drive into a pit.

Sport was for recreation
supposed to be just a game,
now they've become big business
and they're not at all the same.
