Haiku Bob – Round 15: incurable hope

 

taking my kid

to her first game –

sun and moon

 

 

 

 

crucial kick –

quiet enough in the stadium

to hear it

 

 

 

 

new glasses –

the same blemishes

in our forward line

 

 

 

 

 

we hit the front –

my incurable hope

resurfaces

 

 

 

 

 

what are we here for?

my daughter screams

“We’re in front!”

 

 

 

 

 

brilliant sunset –

the game losing

its appeal

 

 

 

 

 

defeat looms –

my daughter wears

my face

    Free kick Hawthorn still
    Even now they are no good
    It’s free kick Hawthorn

    New glasses? Will we get a new photo?
    The turnover in football managers in Eddie’s Empire seems to have crippled your list and your performance more than any sins of Nathan. Jamie Elliot is your best marking forward??
    Maintain the rage HB.
