Brother Bollocks
watches

he can’t
help it

the game
is agonizing

for the
players

for the
fans

such listless
activity

ensuring
no results

extra time
somehow
offered

somehow
suffered
for such
mediocrity

but
that too
becomes
pointless

no score
finally leading
to the chance
of penalty
tries

after all
of those
hours
expended

a few seconds
will deliver
final judgement

one slight
miscalculation
causing
failure

allowing success

Brother Bollocks
watches

he can’t
help it

he watches
his life
dwindle
to the end

not knowing
where
to aim

wondering
if he too
will earn
any points
at all
