Round 6 – Haiku Bob: no tomorrow



for the worst-case scenario —

we take on Hawthorn





cases surge —

we start like

there’s no tomorrow





lockdown —

the effort not to let fly

at the umps





dewy surface —

the dog licks

my bald spot





last quarter —

closing my eyes

I miss our only goal





win in lockdown —

the roar

of the fake crowd






ISO footy —

I mull over the win

with the dog
