The Good Things In The World Cup – haiku

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lots and lots of goals
teams not scared of attacking
so thrilling to watch.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Referees with spray
fantastic gadget
get behind white line.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 National Anthems
players with tears in their eyes
singing out of tune.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Fans from the both teams
sit alongside each other
united nations.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Some wonderful goals
like Tim Cahill’s crackerjack
a perfect volley.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Best ever World Cup
there’s hardly been a bad game
we’re nuts on Brazil !



As I wrote on the tedious side of the tournament I thought I’d change from Victor Meldrew and balance it out with the best of it for me.
Someone said at the start he thought it was going to be a rubbish World Cup but he now thinks it probably is the best ever ?
If it carries on into the knockout stage like it is now it surely will be.
As Victor might say ” I Don’t Believe It !”
