AFL Preliminary Final – Sydney v Collingwood: September breeze

preliminary final
every seat taken
by hope

 

winter has gone
but the cold lingers
in our forward line

 

creeping shadows
not even Pendlebury
can escape

 

sun goes down
Jetta steals
the light

 

dodging, weaving
Harry ducks under
the moon

 

all night
looking up and seeing
the opportunity
is gone

 

September breeze
from out of nowhere
four unanswered goals

 

a cracking goal
exaggerates
the crowd

 

so final
the final
siren
