Haiku Bob – Round 3: such is life



how I wish

it was like

when it started







early lead

old stories

about getting high







grand final rematch

this time we don’t wait

for the end







killing time

indiscriminately bombing

the ball forward






still night

no shape

in midfield






the difference

between winning and losing

jam donuts






such is life

together winners and losers

board the train home
