Australians Divided

Poetry


Australians can be a divided lot
When it comes to important things
The royal wedding was being relayed
But football is what Friday night brings

The royal fans stood their ground
The television station even complied
They weren’t going to be held responsible
For a nations divide

The football was delayed an hour
While royal fans enjoyed the view
Of the much anticipated wedding
And Wills and Kate, saying – I do! (I will)

The station took control soon after
‘We leave the royal wedding now,
The football’s about to start’
The walk down the aisle, is not an important part?

Compromise is a wonderful thing
Although at times, seemingly - unfair
Friday football is broadcast nearly every week
The royal wedding a ‘once in a lifetime’ affair!
