Football Belongs To…
“Football belongs to everyone”, or so
The TV trailer dribbles, with moving
Images of goals scored, shots saved, proving,
With men and women, girls and boys, there’s no
Inequality in the people’s game.
Except, of course, clubs are the property
Of potentates, those with the equity
And leveraged deals, their motives the same,
Premier profits. Players simply assets
To be bought and sold, fans are consumers
With no control over what occurs;
Promotion, relegation, crippling debts.
Football belongs to everyone et al?
No! The whole game belongs to capital.
