Football Against Apartheid – resident poet, penned this poem for Palestine

6 years ago faa 0

There are no chains on footballs
And there will never be
But all of us are in shackles
Till Palestine is free

You bureaucrats in Zurich
Please leave your ivory tower
And expel Israel from FIFA
And don’t abuse your power

Cause children they are dying
Injustice rules it’s true
And Israel being in FIFA
Is one big stain on you

Expulsion is the answer
Expulsion is the key
Expulsion is the only thing
Till Palestine is free

You bureaucrats of Zurich
I’m putting my trust in you
We brought down apartheid South Africa
And we can bring down Israel too
