Round 11 – Collingwood v Port Adelaide – Haiku Bob: Anchored in the backline

Anchored in the backline





grey day ~
the colours of the magpie



the rain falls
as I watch Jessie White
miss another goal




scattered showers ~
our players everywhere
they shouldn’t be

wet afternoon ~
we continue our tumble
down the ladder


winter rain ~
the ball anchored
in the back line







after rain ~
our team making
no impression







heavy defeat ~
in the recycling
news of last week’s win
