Throw the Red Card at Fifa's Blatter

Sepp Blatter is right; something following the arrest of senior Fifa officials does smell
It’s the stench of bribery and corruption on your watch that your control of funds compels
As a commercial fisherman in an earlier life, I recognize a rotting smell
For you to allege retaliation by the English speaking media is an impossible sell
Sepp, an organization like a fish rots from the top
You are the bribery disbursing equivalent of a traffic cop
How much money did Qatar and Russia have to fork over to Fifa for their World Cups?
My guess is in the millions proof positive that your leadership is corrupt
Ironic that the game which costs the least for equipment needed for the youth to play
At the top millions upon millions in bribes are the overriding rules of the day
Here is a news flash as your salary you continue to hide, Sepp Blatter
It may be hard for you to believe but ethics and lack of bribes do really matter
Parts of the world that have not been bribed to continue you autocratic and corrupt rule
Need to in addition to the criminal process reach into soccer’s bag of effective tools
Sepp, a red card at you needs to be immediately thrown
The exit door to head of Fifa you must be shown
If you remain, time to boycott Fifa and your corrupt World Cup process disown
A new noncorrupt Fifa without you and your corruption must set soccer’s new tone
