Round 4 – Haiku Bob: cabin fever


match day lockdown —

sitting closer

to the TV




cold moon up before acceptances




pandemic —

our fickle goal kicking





social distancing —

Daicos runs away

and goals




winter trees —

the goalkeeper’s knee






taking my mind

off the pandemic —

last minute defeat




cabin fever —

I go to bed

without washing my hands
