Rounds 8-10 – Haiku Bob: footy frenzy

no goals —
with this virus, what you can’t see
could kill you

 

 

 

masked-up —
no way to put a good face
on these defeats

 

 

 

pandemic —
the long queue
to kick goals against us

 

 

 

new testing targets —
another shot for goal
drifts wide

 

 

 

footy frenzy —
I fall asleep
on the couch

 

 

 

rising death toll —
our team starts
to flatline

 

 

 

isolation —
all I think about
is that Daicos goal
