Round 8 – Haiku Bob: whisky moon


three goals down
we complain
of the cold


remaining calm
amidst the raging rapids


tight game
the last quarter begins
for the moon also


another year older
I brace myself
for a crushing defeat


Daicos swoops
the rest we know
by heart


from every seat
in the stadium
the winning goal


whisky moon
I let this victory
sink in
