Round 13 -Collingwood v Western Bulldogs: Haiku Bob – fade to nothing

 

winter chill –

the shock

of a shock defeat

 

 

 

 

thick sky

the coach’s message

not getting through

 

 

 

 

sun between clouds

I have a bad feeling

about this

 

 

 

 

3 goals down

sinking further

into the couch

 

 

 

 

shorter days

we start playing well

too late

 

 

 

 

sometimes

even Pendlebury

is not enough

 

 

 

loss to bottom team

the problems of the world

fade to nothing

 

 

 

bare trees

the coach says

we’ll bounce back

    HB, Bucks won’t be judged until at least 2016. Hope he gets it together before then!
