THANK GOD FOR SPORT!!!!!!!!!!!

SITTING ON A COUCH,
ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON,
BORED.

I TURN ON THE RADIO,
SAME OL' TUNES,
I LOOK AT THE NEWSPAPER,
SAME OL' STORIES,
SO MUCH DRAMA AND GLOOM.

HUMMMMMM,
LET'S SEE WHAT'S ON THE TUBE.

CHANNEL 2
COMMENTATOR GIVEN HIS OPINION,
ABOUT WAR AND POLITICS,
I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF IT!!!!!

CHANNEL 4

RECAPPING THE STORIES FROM THE NIGHT BEFORE.

CHANNEL 7

SPIRITUAL-MMERCIAL

GAURANTEE THAT WE ALL WON'T GET TO HEAVAN

JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I HAD SEEN IT ALL

CHANNEL 11

GOT FOOTBALL!!!!!!

IT'S FIRST AND TEN,
AND THE HOME TEAM IS DRIVING,

THE 30,THE 40 , THE 50, WITH EASE.

TOUCHDOWN!!!! 

RAISED ARMS AND HANDS,

OF FANS IN THE STANDS,
AND THE REFEREE.

THEN I REALIZE, AS I STAND THERE,
SHOUTING YES,YES,YES!!!!!!

I WAS ALONE.... BUT CONTENT,
MAKING NOISE.

AS MY ARMS, STILL RAISED,

I CLOSE MY EYES,

THANKING GOD FOR SPORT.
