Brazil overview haiku x 9

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 am I so alone
in not wanting this great feast
of football to end?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 can we all agree
we have seen some players here
with such class and skill?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 sometimes when we watch
the romantic in us all
wishes we were them

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 even though today
so many play over here
always someone new

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Rodríguez for me
as he glances turns and nets
the best strike so far

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 they can stand up tall
no-one tipped them for success
go Columbia

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Uruguay will weep
as they left this battle ground
on what could have been

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Chile were due more
to control that baying crowd
they deserve a crown

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 meanwhile for Brazil
passion heart and atmosphere
hide the gaping flaws
