Round 2 – Haiku Bob: the new normal



the footy returns

my voice






new cluster –

the team huddle

dappled with blondes






out of quarantine

the giddy joy

of an early lead






sanitising –

the clean hands

of Daicos






social distancing –

no one going near


(or bloody Houli!)






lockdown ends

can someone tell that

to our forwards?





the new normal –-

Collingwood gives up

a match-winning lead
