In The 2010 World Cup Finals - Poem by Francis Duggan

'Tis like all things in human life this World game of football
Of the praise and the glory the winners take all
And with National pride as well as ego at stake
For the losing teams and their fans disappointment and heartache
A football carnival of flag waving and of Nationalistic pride
Of the only field game that is played Worldwide
To be known as a gallant loser none would wish to choose
But for one to win outright many have to lose
In football as in human life losing big egos do deflate
You never hear anyone saying that the losers were great
The winners they create their own history
In sports as in human life that's how it seems to be
In the 2010 World Cup Finals the outright winners will take all
Of the praise and the glory in this game of football.
