Round 2 – Haiku Bob: armchair ride


autumn sunshine
the promise of a win
at home


lingering summer
Pendlebury goes on
and on


in iso—
tending to the veggie garden
between goals


scudding clouds
the midfield spreads and runs
towards goal


at home on the couch
getting an armchair ride
from the umps


another four points
in the bag
autumn dusk


one thousand goals—
one by one the spectators
resume their seats
