Haiku Bob – Round 19 – not cut out

 

bright winter sun

everything, even our football team

looks good

 

 

 

comfortable lead

out of nowhere

chest pains

 

 

 

 

patchwork sky –

a few players on the team

not cut out for this

 

 

 

 

dwindling lead –

slowly coming back to me

my therapist’s number

 

 

 

 

win goes begging

how brittle they are –

winter trees

 

 

 

 

after the loss

my daughter asks me why

we barrack for Collingwood

 

 

 

 

still awake…

50 points in front

we were 50 points in front

  1. HB – I was wondering how you might handle this one. This was a bit like the “Eight bloody one” Monty Python skit.

  2. Your chest pain…,A case of anticipatory psychogenic trauma

    Hope the pain has eased.

    Tiger supporters, we know it well.

    Love your words

  3. Loved this, HB.
    Fantastic stuff.

    Loved the two books I have of yours now. This sums up a losing day. Brilliant.
