Round 4 – Haiku Bob: The slide




As if they know

I’m nervous

— nervy start



Night shower

for a moment Pendlebury

walks on water



Approaching winter

coughing up

another goal



Falling leaves

the full-forward

I didn’t even know was there



Intermittent showers —

the odd patch

of good play



Rain sets in…

the slide continues

down the ladder



Passing train —

our team going nowhere
