Football pundits only use

The present tense and I suppose

They have no sense of history

To me this is a mystery


So have they never been to school

They use the past tense not at all

Describing games played yesterday

As though the match was still in play


It’s sad to think they’re not that bright

They’re truly not that erudite

Though many it is true to say

Have lost their accents on the way.
