The Blame Game In The Western World - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

in blame game as applied in modern western world
the firemen, police, teachers, football referees
are prime targets in society no respect blame games
referees make mistakes are human thus referees
are emotion targets line crossed intensity targets
yellow cards red cards honour reason decisions

accountability television fans managers owners
massive money in first division decisions
malign referees professional exceptional top clubs
get criticism swaying referee preference selections
who referees which games which decisions
are profit potential winning decision reasons?

who will be strong have courage of fair own convictions?
who is right who is wrong is absolute own team applied bias?
verbal abuse physical abuse fueled heated on favour team bias?
where is the skill will knowledge maturity to balance bias?
poison chalice upheld tests viability of preference error decisions?
this cup of blood sweat tears pride skill honour what price paid?
