WC2018 Day 3

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Technology trumps
VAR and GLT
Pivotal and true

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ~ # ~

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Icelandic sub keeper (Fred Schram)
Is an imposter
The only non-sson
On the roster

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But his pals are heroes once again
With Messi’s penalty saved
They hold out for a draw
And the defence never caved

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 ~ # ~

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Hill walk

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 there are reasons
for not watching every match
even though it IS the World Cup
and it only comes around
once every 4 years

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 and surely one of those reasons
is to convene with nature
walking and talking
amongst friends
old and new

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 but as I take a pew
and reflect, on the beauty that lay before me –
the rolling hills buffered up
by the coy mist and boisterous breeze
my mind begins to tease

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 it would have been nice
to chat incessantly
about chances taken and chances spurned
about line-ups and omissions
and every starting berth earned

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 but that wasn’t the strength
of this particular pod
so the nearest I got to a Rimet yarn
was being told on exit from brackish tarn…
that my boots were kinda messy!!
