Preliminary Final – Haiku Bob: in unison



fear is this:
with 3 quarters to go



umpires this
umpires that . . .
urinal chatter



Daicos misses –
still a God
I could believe in



beer earths me between goals



tangled branches
we wrestle back
the lead


waning moon –
our lead stretched


less than a minute . . .
the crowd gasps
in unison

About rob scott

Rob Scott (aka Haiku Bob) is a peripatetic haiku poet who calls Victoria Park home. He writes haiku in between teaching whisky and drinking English, or something like that.


  1. My daughter Kate, who has Down Syndrome and stands at about 130cms, plays in a netball team. They’re all about the same height. I call them the Giants. So I was barracking for the Giants.

    Sorry Haiku.

    Hell of a game.
