Bread and circuses

Football fixed
opinions mixed  
fighters paid  
to take more licks
the beautiful game
just too mundane  
chance must be contained  
why complain?
are you not entertained?
 
On the walls
in the books
no independent
second look
who gives a fuck
we all end up
covered in muck
or stuck
 
Non of it matters  
itís not even real  
a scripted soap
Iíve heard the spiel
Donít call it insane  
youíre being detained  
Iíll ask you again  
are you not entertained?
