Haiku Bob – Round 3 – a new side

first win of the year
my daughter sees a new side
of her dad




our conversation
goal from the boundary




nine unanswered goals
more brilliant tonight
the stars




big half-time lead
some knowing looks
at the urinal




distant jet
the dashing defender
takes off




final siren
time to go home
and watch the replay!




beating Carlton
the fragrant aftertaste
of a single malt

  1. I bet the single malt went down a treat, HB.

  2. It was 23 years old Smokie.
    Almost as old as you.
    Went down a treat.

  3. Luke Reynolds says

    “Some knowing looks
    at the urinal”

    Gold. Literally.

    Go Pies.
