Only A Game Of Football - Poem by Francis Duggan

The 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa of the World's most popular field game
But only to the outright winner will go all of the fame
Out of thirty two finalists only one Country will be champions on World Cup final day
To the winner all of the glory as some do like to say
With so much National pride at stake and with so much for on which to play
Some may say 'tis only a game but it does not seem that way
It can hardly be called sport or a game with so much pride at stake
For the losing teams and their fans there is only heartache
Football is like human life in that many must lose for one to celebrate
And only the winners are lauded as great
With egos and pride at stake as well as esteem
'Tis sport in name only or so it does seem
In the World Cup finals of the glory the outright winner takes all
Yet some will tell you it is only a game of football.
