Divide & Conquer

Hey everyone. A poem on the subject of sport & the tribalism which can sometimes accompany it. I have called it divide & conquer I hope you find it a thought provoking read

Divide & Conquer

Powerful they seek to invent
the rules of the game
a game in which we are only spectators
never part of the team
they have set the agenda
as to where we go to watch
we will be placed at opposite ends
of the theatre
given colours to wear
as badges of identity
to show where our loyalties lie
we will have songs hymns & battle cries
as the rich produce the merchandise
we will buy for the dream
supporting our teams
as they smile having won the game
of divide & conquer.

@ Gayle Smith 2011
