WC2018 – WC2022.. are we nearly there yet ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’ve criss-crossed the country
taken Steppes small and large
travelled alone or in convoys
by plane, train or barge

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 first intentions were
that we weren’t to get lost
but as we familiarised on the journey
we fortified and then bossed

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 we’ve taken in the sights as we trekked:
Volgograd; Mizhny Novgorod;
Kaliningrad; Moscow; Samara
and next we’re heading…
to somewhere by the Sahara??? **

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 improvement and betterment
will be the order of the day
an aggregation of marginal gains
as we wend our merry way

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and as this journey lengthens
I’m sure we’ll have cause to fret
with constant self-examination… but….
are we nearly there yet?!?!?!


** poetic licence!!

I had a good idea that the Sahara wasn’t the nearest desert – but I did have to look it up & check!

The Sahara is in Africa.
The Arabian Desert is the nearest to Qatar.

The end of a fabulous World Cup.
Looking forward to the next one already…..
