Day 21 : Rest Day 2 : Sore losers

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sore, as in battered and bruised
And still confused
As to how they lost
Too late, they learn at their cost
That fortune favours the brave
Whenever knight battles knave

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sore, as in bad losers
Petulant bruisers
Hatching a conspiracy theory
About which, we’re growing weary
When good grace, towards their hosts
Would go some way, to allaying their ghosts

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Saw, as in we’ve seen
Such wonderful sights
Big names – crashing
Emergent forces – dashing
So many surprises
On the way to the big prizes

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Sour grapes Haiku

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 From sun bles’t slopes
Go(a)lden vines, of sour grapes
Ahn tastes bittersweet glory


For the record :

Perugia have sacked Ahn Jung Hwan, who scored the winning golden goal for South Korea against Italy! Just because he had the temerity to score against them!

Roger Lemerre resigned from his position as French coach, after their complete debacle : one point, no goals and bottom place in their qualifying group!
