The Agony & Ecstasy of Fans ~9 haiku

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 joy and pain so clear
etched with paint upon each face
when they win or lose

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 yes we’re bored with waves
as they jump and scream each time
they’re up on the screen

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 in despair and then…
suddenly all garish grins
look..please look..it’s me!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 who dictates we need
stunning girls or kids in tears…
to enjoy a game?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 magnify the pain
spotlight on the nerves and fear
in case we don’t feel

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 is this all we are
background décor for each match…
or am I just sad?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 still it would be strange..
like some cardboard cut-out crowd
if they were not there?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 and you have to ask
what would it be like without
all these crazy fans

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 agony and ecstasy
together in harmony
fans go through it all~

Yes we’re all fed up with pics of people worshipping the camera every time they see themselves but hey …wouldn’t it be a dull if fans weren’t so animated?/

This after looking at some great pics in The Guardian today of fans going through it all…..
