A Bloody Riot............ [Football/Soccer Fan Violence; Humor? ? ; VERY Short]


Today’s News said fans tore a referee to pieces.
I wonder if they tore..... along the ref’s creases.

But it wasn’t just random fanatic-fan strife,
since the ref first killed the fans’ player..... with a knife.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i read the gruesome account in my magazine The Week. i believe it happened in Brazil. the ref kicked the player out of the game, they started to fight, the ref stabbed the player, and some fans went crazy.......or just took advantage of a bad situation. in the 'OLD WEST' in america, before many towns had sheriffs/police, i guess the regular people took justice into their own hands............but maybe not quite like this.

    Sad to read about it... After all every sport is a war and the net result will be barbaric. (Report) Reply

    its totally a nice work. Fans these days are more nervous and angry, let alone that the players play like a flight

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
