The Male Attitude To Rugby… - Poem by Margaret Alice

Koos Kombuis saved the day
by explaining the male psyche
regarding rugby: at six minute
intervals his thoughts return to
rugby, when watching, nothing
is allowed to disturb him, everything
centres on rugby, it’s a hallowed
and holy activity - far beyond the
confines of common existence;
thank heaven the Springboks won
on Saturday – please make the
bickering on racist quotas stop;
otherwise he’ll go on strike and
start thinking of love every six
minutes – Liefling - and THAT
would be a real tragedy!

Koos Kombuis’ articles in the Sunday Newspaper is a life-saver, he comes up with the funniest observations and ideas and gives one such insight into the caveman psyche of the average male – at least as seen through Koos’ eyes… Current joke – professor meets guy with IQ of 130 and they discuss Einstein’s relativity, meets guy with IQ of 80 and they discuss women; meets guy with IQ of 30 and they discuss the Blue Bulls! Poor rugby fans are really run down at the moment, but they WILL autocratically monopolize the TV.
