The End Haiku

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Thirty-two started
The underdogs had a chance
At least for a while

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Shootouts decided
The hosts crumbled before fans
Two giants remained

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Watching above them
Holding the Golden Ball stood
Christ The Redeemer

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Left holding the Cup
Cool German engineering
It’s all over now

Notes

Watching the final on BBC, a stunning shot of the sunset behind Christ the Redeemer created the illusion that he was holding the sun!
