Referee - Poem by Itai Oscar

In life there are people
who are referees.
They blow a whistle
when you make a wrong
They flash yellow cards
in your face
Yes, and red cards too!
They are with you in the field
of play
But they have a different
uniform
You pass them a ball
they ignore
They neither help you nor
your opponents.
When you score
they don't celebrate with you
Actually they penalize you
for celebrating too long
They're constantly checking
time
to see if your time is up
Watch out for referees!

    Wouldn't it be useful, having the benefit of slow motion replay, so that the referees could actually overturn their wrong calls! ! ! Don't let them tarnish your fair play.....well done write, loved the spin you put on it. PEACE (Report) Reply
