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


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.

    A ref killing a player? ? Would not happen with the guys I play with! ! More like a bad ref having the **** beaten out of him for bad decisions. Tearing apart? ? No. Beaten? ? Yes. This ref sounds like he NEEDED tearing apart
