Euro 2012 Haiku Selection 1

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 STOP THE RACISM HAIKU
the ball’s in their half
Poland and Ukraine will hope
they can kick it out
***
HELLENIC HAIKU
Karagounis and
Papadopolus assist
my shortest haiku
***
MATCH ABANDONED HAIKU
thundering anthems
a diluvian downpour
lightning’s twin strikers
***
IT’S A DIRTY JOB HAIKU
close-up cameraman
can’t take his eyes off all those
gorgeous foreign girls
***
THE GROUP THEY FEAR THE MOST HAIKU
Spain, Greece, Portugal,
The Republic of Ireland
yes – The Group of Debt
***
OLD HABITS HAIKU
German fans delayed
ten thousand towels appear
on stadium seats
***
GLASNOST & PERESTROIKA HAIKU
the dance in Gdansk
is the Lech Walesa waltz:
the Solidarnosc
***
THE CHOSEN FEW HAIKU
hoping to be picked
the England squad learn about
those on Schindler’s list
***
WHERE RACISM LEADS US HAIKU
Schindler’s factory:
England’s coloured players eye
Swastika banners
***
SHANKLY WAS WRONG HAIKU
where ARBEIT MACHT FREI
they see the final proof that
football’s just a game

Editors haiku..

great work Mr G
always knew you’d come up trumps
three lines on your shirt
