Off Your Knees

Keep politics out of sport
Black lives may matter
but all that matters here
is the score

because standing up for the national anthem 
is not political
but kneeling for it is

Keep politics off the pitch
Offence and defence 
are matters for the field of play
not for the field of struggle

Cup Final Conundrum

Who to cheer today at Wembley's meeting?

The other's filthy rich and so elitist
My position? Revolutionary defeatist
