Round 5 – Haiku Bob: second wave


second wave —
missed chances
come back to bite us




rising numbers —
our defence
leaking goals




Daicos goals —
the times I wonder
what Dad would think




quarantine —
wondering where
all our players are




border closure —
we get close
but can’t get over the line




corona —
washing my hands
of this latest defeat




2020 —
losing all hope
this will be the year
